Biography

Deriving their name from the ill-fated characters featured in the work of writer/illustrator Henry Darger, the Vivian Girls (not to be confused with the "craft pop" duo of the same name) are a Brooklyn-based trio whose gritty, lo-fi tunes nod to seminal indie pop acts like Black Tambourine, Talulah Gosh, and Tiger Trap. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Cassie Ramone, bassist Kickball ... Read more in Amazon's Vivian Girls Store

Editorial Reviews

On their third album (and Polyvinyl debut) Share the Joy, Brooklyn's Vivian Girls continue to sharpen and refine their transcendent mix of garage thrash, girl-group warmth and infectious pop hooksmanship. The trio's vibrant blend of guitar noise and melodic sweetness has already made Vivian Girls one of America's most celebrated and influential young bands, and has helped to spark a wave of similarly-inclined female-fronted acts who've followed in their wake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album yet! January 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
(Taken from my blog at [...])

This is also another album that seemed to get lost in the maze this year with some people preemptively dismissing it before it even came out. In an odd way, it seems like the backlash towards Vivian Girls happened almost immediately and I'm not sure why. Pretty much all of the members branched out into other projects and bands so I was never sure exactly where Vivian Girls stood any longer but the answer was not only surprising but ultimately, quite fulfilling.

You see, Vivian Girls know what you think of them. They know that they, for better or worse, boxed themselves in with their first two albums. And they also know that several groups have followed in their steps, such as Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls, who are now both enjoying considerable acclaim. So what do they do?

Throw down the gauntlet with the first track. Instead of songs averaging around the 1 1/2 minute mark, they embark on a 6 minute journey filled with shifting key changes, hard rocking distortion and even a lengthy guitar solo. And it doesn't stop from there. The rest of the album is filled with this same sense of energy, almost as if they are eager to prove themselves again, to show that they have not gone away and will not die out. They cover some of the same tracks that they're known for (60's inflected garage rock, girl group harmonies) but they're able to topple them over and rebuild them into something new. The difference this time is they have the confidence and know-how to prove it. Your move, Bethany Cosentino!
