LE VICE DEFTLY BLENDS A WIDE SPECTRUM OF SOUNDS AND MUSICAL STYLES RANGING FROM ROCK AND ELECTRO, TO SOUL AND DANCE, TO ANY OTHER RAD GENRES YOU CAN THINK OF. AFTER 5 (OR 6 OR 7?) YEARS OF BUILDING IN THE BAY AREA'S "MELTING POT" MUSIC SCENE, LE VICE STILL FINDS A WAY TO HOLD TRUE TO THEIR DIVERSE MUSICAL ROOTS. THEIR PALETTE OF WARM, FUZZY ANALOG SYNTHS, MATCHED WITH GUITARS WHICH ARE SOMETIMES MEATY, AND OTHER TIMES GHOSTLY, FLOAT IN VAST SPACE, CRADLED BY FULL AND DRIVING BASS AND LIVE DRUMS. MARRY THESE CLASSIC TIMBRES WITH DIGITAL SYNTH SOUNDS AND BOOMING 808 DRUMS AND YOU HAVE LE VICE... WELL, KIND OF. BECAUSE IN THE END WHEN YOU MUSH ALL THOSE FLAVORS TOGETHER, IT IS SIMPLY CATCHY POP MUSIC; VIABLE FOR THE MASSES.
