Melbourne’s Vermont today return with their melodic and emotive new single “Solace.” The release follows previous single “Ruin” and signals a step into the band’s self-titled debut EP, which was released on Friday 27th March.
Produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Christopher Vernon, “Solace” is a glimpse into an anxiety-driven sleepless night and the act of putting walls up and faking a smile during the day to avoid confronting the demons that cause anxieties.
The release is accompanied by a music video, filmed and directed by Martin Wood, which emanates the feelings of unease and detachment surrounding the single.
Vermont may be one of Melbourne’s best-kept secrets, but they arrive armed with a slew of melodic, emotionally-charged grunge rock gems worth uncovering.
Comprised of vocalist Joshua Swanwick, guitarist Jono Hnatejko, bassist Nathan Borg, and drummer Curtly Lyon, Vermont have been busy clocking up airplay on triple j for “Ruin”, as well as honing their live show with a stack of strong support slots.
Having cut their teeth on shared stages with the likes of Stuck Out, Stepson, Pridelands, Rumours, Reside, The Comfort, and Foxblood, Vermont are ready to take 2020 by the horns and charge forward into a fruitful career.
With their discography of driving and emotive releases still in its infancy, the band return with the shimmering and sombre “Solace”; their first release of the New Year, and the perfect transition into their debut EP.
