Artistic and endearingly edgy, Vooms create a high energy and entertaining show, while an acoustic show inevitably reveals the true depth of the songwriting. Either way, you'll want to know more about the tiny swimmer in the fishbowl and wonder who it could be she is singing to. Perhaps it is you.

Biography

VOOMS is a new band from Hollywood making a new wave in new wave. The sound also features hints of synthpop and rock, but is hard to place in a specific genre. Perhaps VOOMS is indeed creating the ripples of a new wave. They are artistic as well as endearingly edgy, but facilitate strong mainstream appeal with the catchiness of the songs.

Don't let the blonde hair of vocalist/songwriter Marcelle Deanne fool you into thinking she is just another Debbie Harry or Gwen Stefani. Marcelle produces and mixes all the tracks herself out of the home studio in her pink bedroom with fashion sketches by her best friend hanging on the wall. "It's my little creative fishbowl. When all my friends are out drinking, I'm in here thinking I will join them, but instead I keep swimming back and forth until I get the idea in my head translated into the computer."

Previously her only outlet for showcasing her music was with her guitar or simply playing the piano, which she still enjoys the simplicity of, but felt extremely limited in ways of expanding what she wanted to communicate musically.

With just her guitar in tow, Marcelle set out from Indiana into the dark depths of the Open Mic in Hollywood, where she waited hours for her three minutes of expression. At one particular venue, she was invited back for her first show. Ironically, this is also where she met drummer James McCutchen. James recruited some musicians from his other band to play Marcelle's songs, and they progressed from hole in the wall dive bars to The Troubadour and world famous Whiskey A Go Go. The music was more mellow and alternative rock at this point, and Marcelle still felt inclined to continue development of the music. However, the band playing with her actually belonged to another band and she had a hard time finding musicians who could understand her language when she spoke of the music and her vision.

At this point, as a struggling artist, Marcelle sacrificed her plastic (credit card) to purchase a keyboard with programming capabilities. She began experimenting and soon her songs had an indefinable distinctive quality of something. What that something was, some still aren't sure, but Marcelle was tired of trying to fit her quirky triangular visions inside the square boxes of expectation.

She envisioned live drums with these new programmed tracks after dancing in LA nightclubs featuring a live drummer playing to hip hop and dance tunes. Marcelle hoped adding live drums to the sequenced tracks would give the programmed beats and new wave tracks a rock edge that compliments the music well. She was right. James was willing to give the idea a chance and now adds a dynamic touch with his invaluable ability to interpret the rhythms of the songs at live shows and on the LP they are recording.

Ryan Roberts replaces the programmed bass lines and Ben Epand adds a his touch with guitar at live shows and on many of the EP recordings. On occasion at live shows, a keyboardist will perform the majority of the programming from the recordings, or Mia Moretti AKA DJ Group e. will accompany VOOMS onstage to sync up the electronic portion of the music and add her flavor of sound effects between songs.

VOOMS have currently teamed up with Kali Koast Productions and are in a "real" studio with Richard "Segal" Huredia recording their debut EP "The Bloom" due out early 2008. Luckily for the boys, the walls in this studio are not pink, but a nice velvety texture reminiscent of snake skin.

They are also working on and reviewing treatments with creative director Angie Hill for their up-coming music video. Propeller Productions director Matt Heckerling will also be contributing to the project.

Performing all over Los Angeles, and more recently San Diego and San Francisco, VOOMS create a high energy and entertaining show. That is, unless they decide to provide the audience with an acoustic show, which is indeed a rare treat as it inevitably reveals the depth of the songwriting. If you take away all the definable and unexpected musical characteristics that make a Vooms' song... a Vooms' song, and are left with a skeleton of words and melody, the songs are capable of standing on their own. Either way, you will find yourself wanting to know more about the tiny swimmer in the fishbowl and wondering who it could be she is singing to. Perhaps it is you.

Golden

The world is spinning
It only gets faster
And my whole body shivers

The mind is spinning
I will give you sleep
I warm our bed to ease your quivers

Dreams come fast
Baby, wake at last

What you touch is Golden
You keep on with the stars
You drove here all night
From your room in your car
And now you're Golden
You can't stop who you are
You gonna let it
You gonna, gonna let it...

Let it shine on

Each day is different
Caught in a current
But you made waves of silver

And that white-winged dove
Flapping in your chest
Now she flies free in winter

She flies free
Won't you touch me

What you touch is Golden
You keep on with the stars
You drove here all night
From your room in your car
And now you're Golden
You can't stop who you are
You gonna let it
You gonna, gonna let it...

You gonna, gonna let it...

Let it shine on
Let it shine on

Who do I tell
I don't feel well
I feel better together

Who do I say
Night into day
He won't be alone

One day minds will change
Wolves will stay
Gray will fade

Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room

...stops spinning
...stops spinning

Who do I trust
Keep this for us
Only shadows see we're free

Who am I now
And does this count
Cause I counted more

Oh no
What would we leave here for
This is an experience, see

Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but

My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the...

Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room

Go slow motion
I'm not ready yet
That's when it all happens
I make no defense

The room was pounding on my chest
The air was thick with ashes
The storm was shrieking on the glass
Damn relentless

Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the...

Yes Yes Yes
Heart palpitations in my chest
Boom Boom
They are for you, but
Yes Yes Yes
My reflections dancing in glass
Boom Boom
Are mine until the room
