Local girl-fronted alt.rock band What's Your Vice? headline this female-fronted night at Hector's, exhibiting their tight, trashy, rhythmic guitars, throbbing basslines, and punky vacuous lyrics. - Brighton Source


Bringing a conclusion to the showcase of the night’s acts was What’s your Vice. I’d seen this band play before at The Prince Albert, again in a small room. The atmosphere there had been positively electric. They’d blasted out an absolutely amazing set full of energy, attitude and powerful visuals that totally blew me away. They truly raised the bar for what I expected of local bands and put on a performance that I’ll never forget.

I’d been left with the impression of a small, focussed universe centering on their lead vocalist, Izzy, who’d been a rip-roaring ball of energy, throwing herself around. The band leapt into the crowd, beating floor toms and doing everything right in my eyes.

I was expecting more of the same as I eagerly awaited them to start their first song, but was instead greeted with something very different. With a clearly much more thought out approach then they’d utilised before, the band gave the impression that they were no longer just any old energetic garage band, they’ve risen up out of the underground and are ready to start entertaining thoughts of challenging the major players on the scene.

Tom still provided the same hard hitting grooves on the drums, beating the kit to within an inch of its life and driving the whole thing forward constantly. The drummer as the engine of the band has never been more appropriate. With Chris on guitar still providing as much of an energetic performance as before, but with more surprises in store. His use of effects during his solos twisted the band’s set into a completely new dimension for me. It was somewhere I’ve never been before, but the best music is full of surprises.When I first saw the band, the whole stage constantly exploded, reverberating around Izzy as a nucleus. For this gig however, she seems more like the calm in the eye of the storm, providing a grounded centrepiece, around which the whirlwind of rock can rotate.

Here I come to my only gripe with the set. Not enough leaping into the audience. When I saw them before, you never knew what to expect, and it made it feel dangerous and exciting to watch. Here, with a more considered approach to their songs they are in danger of wandering too far into the safe zone. So I guess that’s the only criticism I can give, not enough jumping. - Audible Thoughts
