Domantas Razauskas has been present in an underground rock circles since his late teens. While being famous for dressing his unique, poetic lyrical journeys in acoustic robes, this time Domantas does something quite different. In his latest album, Domantas is joined by three other musicians and forms a hard-rock band of drums, bass and distorted guitars. This band is names Vos Vos (“A Little Bit” in Lithuanian) and offers the listener eight sharp compositions.
All lyrics, the most charming aspect of Domantas’ music, are in Lithuanian, but the foreign-speaking listeners can enjoy the tunes just as well and find something for themselves in the melodies. The album offers a plethora of styles, ranging from The Lizard King Jim Morrison-inspired blues rock („Raganų kraujo“), to nostalgic, electronic drum beat-based tracks (“Lopšinė”) to dreamy ballads (“Budėjimas”). In fact, in every song of “Vos Vos” the music is just as touching as the lyrics are. The only problem with this album is that it is too short. Eight compositions clock just above half hour and leaves you wanting more. But hey, “too short” is always better than “too long”.
