Naked on the Vague appeared out of nowhere in 2008 with a debut LP that had an ominous, purple-hued photograph of a man and woman holding antlers, candles, mirrors, and other things on the cover. But you gotta give the Sydney, Australia-based duo (Lucy Cliché and Matthew Hopkins) some credit for paving the black tar on the new goth scene that currently resonates in hipster cliques worldwide. (I think people call it grave wave?) Naked on the Vague's music is a racket of dissonant tones and morbid fascinations. Their latest full-length, Twelve Dark Noons, recorded as a four-piece, showcases their decidedly fuller doom vibes brilliantly. Witchy young lady Zola Jesus is a hybrid of Stevie Nicks, Diamanda Galás, and Siouxsie Sioux, and her classical take on material Swans never wrote is good enough to win over the veteran goths who actually partied in the Batcave.
