This Quiet Room (LP)

[ Vietnam / LP ]

Release Date: Friday 28 January 2022

This Quiet Room is the final, definitive statement from New Zealand post-punk/ new wave/dark indie band Vietnam, who formed at high school in Wainuiomata some forty years ago. Initially active from 1981-85, and reforming in 2017 to celebrate the reissue of their self-titled 1985 debut, Vietnam went on to record This Quiet Room between 2019 and 2020.

Co-founding member, bassist, and songwriter Adrian Workman says of the new album: "Renewed interest in our music stimulated by the re-release of the 1985 EP, coupled with some unfinished business, injected the band with the motivation to record previously unreleased material along with a batch of new songs written in the pre-production phase of the album."

The finished album follows a timeline of the band's repertoire, opening with four songs that featured in their live set in the 1980s, before launching into new material. The transition is seamless, and the songs are unmistakably Vietnam: the sound and sentiments of the original line-up ringing throughout, enhanced by the addition of guest musicians.

Available on clear vinyl.
