PRE-ORDER CLOUD CITY EP THROUGH SPINEFARM RECORDS https://VRSTY.lnk.to/CloudCity
NYC’S VRSTY ARE SPINEFARM RECORDS’ LATEST SIGNING
New York City-based collective VRSTY (pronounced “Varsity”) — Joey Varela [vocals], Javy Dorrejo [bass], Chris Cody [drums], and Paul Gregory [guitar] — will release the Cloud City EP via Spinefarm Records on December 4. The band has just dropped the new track “Massive.”
“‘Massive’ is literally all of my frustrations coming to the surface,” Varela says of the song’s powerful source of inspiration. “It’s years of doing favours and helping other’s elevate their careers — only to be told I’m just a copy of ‘insert whatever vocalist here’ or to be called a background player. Not this time. I remember writing ‘Massive,’ and the only thought in my head was, ‘They don’t take you seriously — but they’ll wish they did.'”
VRSTY‘s music is unique and unexpected blend of metallic grooves and R&B vocal swagger. The band has been grinding in the scene for over five years now. VRSTY released the Lights EP in 2015, went on tour, and earned their road stripes. They dropped Blck and Blck Deluxe in 2019, with “YOU & I” (412K Spotify streams), “Colorblind” (311K Spotify streams), and “Nola” (278K Spotify streams) quickly establishing themselves as indie fan favorites.
The band has tallied over 2 million total stream and looks to open things up even more with the Cloud City EP, which serves as its Spinefarm Records debut.
VRSTY‘s Cloud City EP is out on December 4 – pre-orders available at: https://vrsty.lnk.to/CloudCity – and singles ‘Shameless’ and ‘Massive’ are out now.
