In the "about" section of Versing's Facebook page, it lists the following descriptions:
"Sounds like a whale is dying"
"Loud and screechy"
While none of the above is truly accurate (except, maybe loud and screechy, but only in the most positive, Kevin Shieldsian way), the Seattle-based band should have a slew of positives that should be attached to their name. The latest signing to Hardly Art mines post-punk, alt pop and shoegaze to create their newest single "Silver Dollar," a droning number with an attached VHS-style video that recalls James, Catherine Wheel, latter-era the Clean and early XTC in one fell swoop. Heavy guitars are a tell for the band's previous endeavors, but they never take precedent over the group's overall melodic focus despite the song's twisted subject matter — a privileged individual guilty of hit and run who expects to get away with it due to social status. Yikes.
