Bursting into winter from Colorado, alt-rock-Indie-pop foursome VYNYL release their single ‘heart//break’ this December 4th.
‘heart//break’ comes as the second instalment in the lead up to the band’s EP out in February and serves as another dynamic reminder of VYNYL’s potential to make an undeniably hooky head-turner. Filled with spikey exuberance, the track lays down an electric beat to home lead singer Tyler’s yearning lyrics bringing to life the title of the single.
Speaking on the track, VYNYL explain; “heart//break’ is a redemptive, cathartic release of emotion that touches on key themes universal to the human experience such as pain, frustration, and love, as well as the important message of regaining one’s confidence.”
VYNYL is a new wave pop band whose music is as big and vibrant as their emotions. Coming from homelessness to seeking a larger purpose in North Carolina, lead singer John Tyler alongside Andrew Cole, who faced dysphoria of his own, founded VYNYL in 2015 as a means to escape their circumstances.
“I’d grown to be tired of being stuck and I wanted to make a change and do something that would better myself,” says Cole, who originally hailed from Cape Town, South Africa but found his way to North Carolina where he and Tyler met.
The two eventually packed up and moved to Denver, Colorado where they met Hunter Heurich and Logan Hilleman. In time, their complementary talents garnered a strong bond that has brought them acclaim and led them to share stages with the likes of Blink-182, Lil Jon, Bleachers, St. Lucia and more. After a slew of successful singles racking up tens of thousands of streams, VYNYL released their debut EP — Pink on October 18, 2019, to great acclaim.
