Music: VNV Nation

By Reyan Ali · March 24th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

“Bigger is better” is a cliché that VNV Nation must hold close to heart. Composed of Ronan Harris (on vocals and synth) and Mark Jackson (manning percussion), VNV produces industrial-inflected Electronica with a thirst for the grandiose.

Witness the intent behind calling their last LP Of Faith, Power and Glory — reusing a tactic that factored into 2007's Judgement, Harris claims that every track on the disc is an interpretation of the title.

Of course, that trio of characteristics is non-specific enough that any VNV record could be renamed Of Battle, Romance and Loss and an able listener could quickly draw thematic links.

They play The Mad Hatter. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
