About Viernes

Mixing baroque indie pop deep into their old-school ambient sounds, Viernes play almost like a fusion of Brian Eno's two main personalities (experimental electronic and power pop). The Winter Park, FL duo of Alberto Hernandez and Sean Moore took the Spanish day name-checking moniker in 2008 and set to creating exhilarating and unusual music that same year. Burying surreally fuzzed-out vocals somewhere between the Kinks and Jesus and Mary Chain under swirling electronic wanderings, the act quickly earned a following, aided by its equally disorienting self-made videos. It also didn't hurt that Viernes were favored by Pitchfork Media, who regularly featured their MP3 releases in 2009. ~ Jason Thurston
