Indie-rock project Voodoo Bloo has taken the New Zealand music scene by storm with its unique blend of hard-hitting sounds, emotional song writing and danceable distorted chaos.
Created and fronted by Rory McDonald (who many will remember from his days as the frontman of the rock band Lucifer Gunne), Voodoo Bloo is influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and System of a Down, combined with the song writing style of Car Seat Headrest and Neutral Milk Hotel.
Sam caught up with him to find some time to discuss all things Voodoo and Rory. You can listen to the full interview here.
Voodoo Bloo is a powerful indie rock-driven project, led by Rory McDonald. Our sounds are very much influenced by harder hitting acts like Marilyn Manson and System of a Down, as well as some singer-songwriter artists such as Car Seat Headrest and Neutral Milk Hotel, which brings a great blend of emotional and conceptual songwriting with a very catchy and frequently danceable distorted mess.
Rory started Voodoo Bloo as a new chapter in his musical career (previously the front-man of Lucifer Gunne), but to still use the knowledge he gained from his previous band to try and make something really special. As of the time of writing this, the album, “Jacobus” has finished tracking (recorded at PlasticGroove HQ), and will be mixed and produced by Niel De Jong (the current manager of Auckland band Alien Weaponry).
