New Liverpool Dance-Rock Discovery: Vasco Da Gama - "Brigadier" from Geography EP

Vasco Da Gama, a four-piece band from Liverpool, is playing some exciting music, stuff that I think is commonly described as "math rock" - bass and guitar lines that race back and forth, quick and nearly constant changes in time signatures and urgent, shouted vocals. They've just released an EP titled Geography, and are currently touring. The band consists of John Crawford – Vocals & Guitar, Chris Lynn, Guitar, Joe Falconer – Bass and David Kelly – Drums.

Here's "Brigadier":

Here's "The Greenland Problem", which seems to have a little bit more of a Latin lilt to it, but still explodes with the guitars and shouted vocals:

The EP is out this week (Apr. 22) and they're touring the UK:

Sat 27th – LINCOLN The Shed
Sun 28th – LIVERPOOL Kazimier
Wed 1st  – LONDON The Old Blue Last
Thu 2nd  – SOUTHAMPTON Avondale House
