Bio

Vincent Sole’s story has been one of baby steps. Emerging through triple j’s Unearthed High talent pool two years ago, Vincent took a calculated approach to 2016. He knuckled down, honed his song craft and only released one song, but it signalled a huge leap forward. Produced by Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, Taku), ‘Don’t Waste My Time’ united Vincent’s twin loves of dancefloor-ready pop music with lush, percussive soundscapes. Triple j got behind the track, giving it numerous spins, and the story continued to grow.

With the brooding ‘The Game’ already under his belt in 2017, the 19-year-old Melbournian has wasted no time with the follow-up. ‘Deep End’ (releasing worldwide on the 3rd of March) is the natural successor to ‘The Game’, capturing that same smouldering infrasound but injecting it with a bit more urgency. Malcolm Besley (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down) has once again added his finishing touches on production and mixing, transforming Vincent’s bedroom recording into a fully-fleshed tour de force.

It's great to hear Vincent continue to hone his sound, a dark style of pop music full of 808 beats and moody synths. It owes a fair bit to Lorde's "Pure Heroine" record but this is a song that sucks you into a world of heady love and youthful abandonment.

This may initially come off as a bit random, but I think this has such a cool Lorde vibe to it?! Hearing some seriously slick electro pop with darker tones and lyrics of that transition from youth to adulthood. Production wise, it's not overcomplicated and lyrically, so relatable. I definitely think this is a stronger offering than previous tune "The Game", and I am SO excited to...

I definitely think this is a stronger offering than previous tune "The Game", and I am SO excited to see how this all translates live, debut show next month is in my calendar son! Keep it up.

With a popular sound at the moment, Vincent will need to forge his own space to get noticed. But there are plenty of strengths on offer here to believe he's a good chance of doing that.
