Void Vision “In 20 Years” 7″ EP
Blind Prophet is proud to present as their first release the highly anticipated debut single from the Philly based coldwave act Void Vision. Already known for their incredible live performances, Void Vision will now appease the masses with the release of In 20 Years which is just as much at home amongst classic Depeche Mode or Fad Gadget as it is amongst contemporary material by artists such as Xeno & Oaklander. However, what sets them apart from their peers is a keen sense of composition and pop song structure, and Shari’s powerful vocals.Limited to a mere 500 hand numbered copies, so act fast!

“…The singer has a great gothic moan, never hammed up by a false accent or anything, and it’s really a perfect match to the music. The chorus of “Black and White” hints at a pop fascination, with the gravitas to make it a reality. I listen to a lot of the modern synth-pop that’s going around… [and] Void Vision is most definitely more exciting to me than the rest.” – Yellow Green Red
