Vinyl Williams – Higher Worlds
The single Higher Worlds, taken from the debut album ‘Lemniscate’, will be released 12th November.
Vinyl Williams are the very epitome of a modern pop act, releasing mixtapes of other people’s music to promote theirs, releasing music through Bandcamp, right through to the 3D modelling in this video. All seemingly part of the DNA of the band, not some management conceived positioning notion.
The music is great too. All at once glowingly retro & knowledgeable, whilst pushing all the digital buttons you’d expect from an artist who does 3D modelling.
It’s no surprise that the man behind “Vinyl Williams”, Lionel Williams, knows his musical onions, when you realise his Dad is Mark Towner Williams. The drummer for Crosby, Stills and Nash, Tina Turner and Air Supply. While is grandfather composed some of the most recognizable film scores in the history of motion pictures, including the Star Wars saga, Jaws, Superman, the Indiana Jones films, E.T.
Lionel is also an artist, who has exhibited in Berlin at the Mindpirate Gallery.
