Mookie Betts is the latest track from London based project, Victory Kicks.
Since starting out as a solo project, John Sibley has enlisted the help of fellow musicians in the London music scene to create what is here before us. In the latest instalment, Victory Kicks has a sound that is best described as a more post-punk War On Drugs. There is an unmistakeable roving feeling that shines through the steady rhythm, mixed with the sharp guitar melody.
Mookie Betts is a superbly written, well-rounded track. The musicianship is second to none, as the whole track maintains your interest throughout. The wondering vocal style woos you from the onset as the gliding effects on the different instruments prick your ears. You can’t help but become submerged in the Victory Kicks world. Mookie Betts is the latest from the talented collab from London and I’m looking forward to hearing more in the future.
