Vaadat Charigim is a trio of Tel Aviv, Israel natives — Juval Haring (guitar and vocals), Yuval Guttman (drums) and Dan Fabian Bloch (bass) who’s sound has been described by some as a blend of 80s Israeli underground rock and European post-punk. And that much may very well be true but to my ears, they remind me quite a bit of the alternative rock i’d come across in the late 80s and early 90s — you’ll hear jangling guitars, bits of feedback, dreamily distracted vocals like you’ll hear on “Odisea,” the second single off the band’s forthcoming full-length debut, The World is Well Lost.

And although their material is written in Hebrew, the band has received quite a bit of international attention, thanks in part to the fact that they have a sound that will strike you as being warmly familiar, especially if you know indie/alternative rock.
