Music Monday: Nico Vega

The first time I heard Aja's powerful vocals, it was on the foot stomping track "Beast". Nico Vega is an alternative rock band originally from LA, and their lead singer, Aja Volkman, has a voice that I envy. I have a naturally sweet, soprano voice whenever I sing, whereas Aja has that tough rasp and strong vocals that turns heads. I'll include "Beast" in today's post, I want to start this off with their cover of a recent favorite, "Bang, Bang." 

Just last weekend, my roommate introduced me to Kill Bill (which has the original cover of "Bang Bang" in the opening credits, in case you're wondering how this ties into anything), and man, I never thought you could combine gore and comedy so seamlessly, but Quentin Tarantino is a master at it. It's sheer entertainment, and I have to admit, I'd never seen a movie like it. I know, I know, I need to catch up in the film world, but I so rarely have time anymore!

Anyway, take a listen to Nico Vega and let me know what you think!

I always love hearing movie soundtracks, it's really crazy how impactful the score is in setting scenes. Gonna check out the songs now :)
