MusicMafia presents Vienna Ditto

Vienna Ditto
Recorded in a chilly boat, a dank basement and an old temperance hall, Vienna Ditto’s
debut EP, Liar Liar, is a DIY diary of their first,turbulent, two years. Recorded and produced by the band themselves, the tapes were then rescued and mixed by Umair Chaudhry at Silver St Studios. The result is intelligent yet memorable, spooky but accessible electronica mixed with dirty guitar riffs – or, as Radio 1’s Huw Stephens puts it, ‘Portishead doing a Tarantino Soundtrack’.
The band – comprising vocalist Hatty Taylor and guitarist Nigel Firth – jerked into life in
April 2009 when a hastily-recorded demo from their second rehearsal was played on
Huw Stephen’s Radio One show. An appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at
Glastonbury 2009 followed, as did a Maida Vale session for Tom Robinson on BBC 6
Music and an appearance on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks Music Show.
Released in November 2009, their debut single Long Way Down gained airplay on
Radio One, BBC6 Music and XFM, and was given glowing reviews in Q Magazine,
Artrocker and The Fly. The band are currently working on their debut album.
