Victoria’s Slam Dunk is a weird mix of sounds. On “Dying Breed” a surfy guitar lick plays over top 80s pop saxophone and a modern powerpop drumbeat. The vaguely Dylan-esque (at times) bridge leads into a spastic sax solo/outro mish-mash. They took a 3 minute song and put together enough complimentary yet totally unique parts to make it seem like a 90 second song. It goes by much quicker than one would expect, and that’s due to “Dying Breed” being oddly mesmerizing from beginning to end. Look out for their album Welcome to Miami which drops November 13, 2012.
