VISTA is anything but dormant. Since 2017, the New York-based electronic alt-rock outfit remained consistently active, having since completed five US tours, released four singles (including their highest-streamed song to date, “Witch Hunt”), shared the stage with Fearless Records’ Set It Off, and earned music video rotation in Journeys’ stores nationwide. The compelling trio, comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista, guitarist Greg Almeida, and drummer Mikey G, has elevated the word ‘independent’ to their own playing ground, racking up 700,000 streams alone on Spotify. Their branding is hypnotizing; aside from their familiar black and blue color palette, VISTA continues to captivate listeners with their trademark electronic influences and entrancing live show.
Their upcoming EP “The Repair,” slated for release on February 14th, will be the second EP in The Trilogy era. Consisting of three separate EPs (“The Ruins,” “The Repair,” and “The Revival”), The Trilogy era is a personal testament to VISTA’s evolution since their inception in late 2015. A distinct blend of active rock and cinematic pop, “The Repair” expands on the notable experimentation and haunting lyricism of their prior release, “The Ruins” (Oct 2019). The band’s signature dark, synth-laden production is still present, but it’s impossible to ignore their contagious hooks and elevated sense of self. With the upcoming release of “The Repair," VISTA is hardly at a climax; they are poised for a revival.
"If massive, anthemic choruses and an instinctive ability for theatric flair float your boat, then you'll want to be checking out VISTA immediately."
