Dark side

“An ode to female solidarity... The trio have a blistering, punk-edge, a precocious sound that finds resolution in that earworm chorus.”

CLASH Magazine

“Vokxen instantly elevated themselves to a ‘must see’ act’”

Gigging NI

“Gorgeous harmonies, & instrumentation… part ‘80s movie soundtrack & part Arctic Monkeys, VOKXEN will have you sensually swaying into the nearest sweaty body against your will.”

LOLA Berlin

“A vibrant Electro-Pop trio. Their songs ooze punk, girl power, and partying.”

EMPWR.IE

“Leaning heavily on the electronic side of pop [ VOKXEN ] have crafted two absolute belters in the shape of [single’s], ’Running’ and ‘Ignite’.”

Dark. Filmic. 80’s tinged, mind-mesmerising pop...VOKXEN. With comparisons made to artists such as Lorde, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and even London Grammar. VOKXEN have become one of the hottest names in Northern Irish music, thrilling crowds at venues across Belfast and playing international shows much further afield in vibrant music cities such as Berlin. Upon a sell-out debut launch in Belfast, VOKXEN were selected as a ‘Scratch’ Act with Oh Yeah Music Centre, performing at top NI festivals such as Stendhal Festival of Art, Sunflowerfest, Sound of Belfast & featuring in ‘Women’s Work’ festival. The band then travelled to Berlin. Both performing & feeling cultur-ally inspired, the trio spent time writing new material off the infamous ‘Karl Marx Strasse’. VOKXEN are now set for their second release of 2018, the ‘bewitching’ new single, ‘Crystal Eyes’. For fans of ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Twin Peaks’. Inspired by the writings of Film critic, Laura Mulvey; Feminist theory, ‘The Male Gaze’ and lyrics based on the 80’s cult film classic ‘The Dark Crys-tal’. The Crystal Eyes music video is being produced by Canadian documen-tary team 'Definitive film’ - known for Paramount's 'Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and various other Netflix, Disney and Google projects.
