Bio

Sydney’s dream-pop outfit, Vast Hill focuses on delivering a perfect blend of retro synth sounds and memorable melodies.

Diving into a pastel coloured, dreamy playground of sonic influences, VAST HILL has re-emerged with their new single and the first taste of their debut LP - More Than You Imagined - in ‘Heartbreaker’. From the opening crashes of electronic percussion, to the funky bassline and vocalist Elle Kress’ soaring notes, ‘Heartbreaker’ is sweet on the ear, enticing the listener to come back for more once the first playback reaches its conclusion.

For Vast Hill, the release of ‘Heartbreaker’ marks a new chapter for the band, a new direction as they lead up to the release of their new album. Working in a similar lane of contemporaries including Touch Sensitive, Donny Benet, Confidence Man and PNAU, Vast Hill are producing music that has serious pop weight behind the production, while the delivery of lyricism has elevated the duo as one’s to watch on the east coast’s indie and electro-pop scene.

Recorded in Sydney and working with Luke Million (I Know Leopard, Stranger Things) on mixing and Michael Chow (FROYO, Phoebe Starr) on co-production, Vast Hill’s new sounds came together under the eyes of some incredible talent. Particularly with Chow, his link up with Vast Hill for ‘Heartbreaker’ strengthened the creative dynamic.

This sounds like a ride into space but on a rocket fitted with some good-ass suspension. No turbulence in this one.
