Versus
On the Ones and Threes
(Merge)
Releasing: 3 August


2010 seems to be the year that indie groups left in the bargain bins of the 1990s are coming back with a vengeance. Add one-time underground faves Versus to the list of resurgent bands making another go of it after a long hiatus, returning from a decade of dormancy with a stint on the TeenBeat 26th anniversary tour and a new album, On the Ones and Threes, due this August on Merge. From the sound of the recently leaked track “Invincible Hero”, the Pixies-ish NYC trio seems to have recharged its batteries, coming off just as forceful and insistently melodic as it was in its mid-1990s heyday.

On the Ones and Threes is an inspired comeback effort that doesn't take for granted that a long absence has made any hearts grow fonder.
