Spells Of Vertigo

Early 1990s musical renaissance

Wednesday 8th July 2015

Look past the gruesome image supposed in the title, and you find a cloudy psychedelic track with a commanding grasp on hazy melody. Spells Of Vertigo are a three-piece rock band who have their sound firmly planted in the musical renaissance of the first half of the 1990s. And while Dizzy, the first single off their awaited E.P. Soaked, managed to find the precise intersection between American and British alternative rock, Baby Born (With No Brain) is classic American psychedelic grunge.


A deceptive low tempo lulls the listener into a relaxed state, allowing the silky bass tones and high pitched croons to wash over like a dreary dream. However, in the last minute and a half, Spells Of Vertigo kick things up a notch, by launching into an aggressive guitar attack that calls to mind the freak-out moments of Smashing Pumpkins’ mid 90s output.
