Hot New Band: Versant
As for the former Shiny Toy Guns frontwoman, Carah Faye Charnow - she's joined forces with Daniel Johansson, producer of the Swedish electro-rockers The Sounds to create a new band - Versant. According to a statement, "Versant synthesizes the melodicism of a true pop siren with up-to-the-minute textures that can ignite both dance floors and rock clubs." Aside from Carah & Daniel, rounding out Versant we have Richard Ankers on drums, Johan Grettve on guitar and keys and Nicholas Oja on bass. This sounds hot! Versant's debut self-titled album is expected out next Spring but expect to hear more from them in the months to come. In the mean time, check out this live cover of ABBA's "SOS."
