ON LIFE; LIVING
Vaux is a passionate sextet from Colorado whose musical style employs a lot of what people may call emo these days. While this four song EP is a bit abrasive at times, the moody interludes, such as the dynamic changes in "To The End", suggests that Vaux hangs out a lot listening to bands like Thursday, Cave In and Glassjaw. While this group emulates the aforementioned bands, Vaux remains a shade darker than its cohorts. Nearing a Gothic tone, showcased in the dim layered effects of "We Speed", this crew opts to create dramatic disturbance, making for some ominous listening.
