Vinyl Williams29.10 CELESTIAL
- Vinyl Williams
Vinyl Williams are a celestial rock / harmonious pop group based in Los Angeles, led by songwriter Lionel Williams. Lionel is also known for his hyper-dimensional, interactive and lo-fi video art films created for his own fans, as well as other artists (Tears For Fears, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Morgan Delt).
Vinyl Williams’ much anticipated fifth album, Azure, is set for release on 5th June via Requiem Pour Un Twister. Over 25 individual paintings were collaged to make the artwork for Azure, representing the complexly organic and decadent music on the record. Lead single LA Egypt is a wild, harmonious odyssey, and represents a new level of songwriting achieved by Williams on the group’s most recent work.
The rare history of harmonious pop music imbued in Vinyl Williams’ music is finally coming to the surface in the warped form of a transcendental hyper-coaster, combining sunshine pop, Afrobeat and progressive rock into a dense emanation of sonic optics. The California native has attuned his sound palette to the cosmic quintessence – opalescent tones that harmonise chaos, synchronising a global family of celestial harmonies into a macrocosmic epicentre.
Active since 2007, the group have toured extensively with Toro Y Moi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mount Kimbie and Temples, among others.
