Though I no longer have a VHS collection at home (all of my movies are on DVD or Blu-ray), there is a bounteous selection of tunes from NYC trio VHS Collection that I will cherish forever. It’s obvious our love for the band will never go obsolete as the indie trio regales us with their latest single, One, a rambunctious outpouring of sleek pulsing electro-rock and beatific new wave. The sweeping, soaring single is an epic first release of 2018 for the ascending band, whom we’ve been praising for well over two years. VHS Collection hits the road in May with a stop in San Francisco at Popscene/the Rickshaw Stop on May 18th. Guess who’s going to be in attendance and already purchased a ticket?

I bet some of you out there have never had a “VHS collection”, unlike me, an 80′s baby who grew up with Blockbusters on every other corner and the phrase “be kind, please rewind” hammered into my mind. But you should be much familiar with NYC trio VHS Collection by now, considering how often we’ve enthusiastically shared their music on IHM. They lose no stride as one of our favorite blossoming alt bands as they release a superb new tune named Sign, which Spotify already selected for their last New Music Friday Playlist. I’m a sucker for vocoder treated harmonies and soft melting melodies, as well as new wavey, synth aureate, glossy pumping ballads. Sign is all that and more, an utterly magnificent indie electro hued taste from the band’s long anticipated debut album, due for release in 2018.

I have a feeling that a large majority of IHM visitors have never used a VHS player, or rewinded a VHS tape. The thought of those obsolete artifacts always fills this 80′s baby with a sense of nostalgia. NYC trio VHS Collection also has the ability to do the same with their alt pop. They put those skills on full display on their new breakup anthem So I Met Someone, a retro pulsing, bittersweet pumping dash of new wavey pop. The single, which premiered via Billboard, arrives alongside the announcement of a summer US tour that will bring them here to San Francisco on June 8th at the Cafe Du Nord. Tour dates and ticket info can be found on Facebook, here.

The summery radiance and bubbly energy on VHS Collection’s latest song is undeniably contagious. Yet Waiting On The Summer was written on one of the coldest days of the year in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn. The NYC trio must have a vivid imagination to be able to create a synthy pop tune so warm and vibrant on a day so frigid. The indie band explains that the song is a “cry for warmer weather, unsupervised high-junks, group love, and half baked self-expression.” The end of our summer lurks on the horizon. I know what I’ll be listening to when the temperature drops and I want to daydream about long sunlit days and wax nostalgic over the past season’s shenanigans. Waiting On The Summer is off VHS Collection’s upcoming EP, Stereo Hype, out September 2nd.

Coincidentally, I’m about to rush out the door to see this act live since they’re playing Popscene in San Francisco tonight alongside POWERS. Before I dash out to the city, it’s imperative I share with you the NYC trio VHS Collection’s latest glamorous thriller. Ghost is a disco funk strutting mesh of dance pop and synthrock. RAC meets Capital Cities on this vivacious pumping, confident sashaying earworm. I have a feeling people are going to grooving up a storm to this one on the dance floor tonight. Ghost comes from VHS Collection’s upcoming EP, Stereo Hype, out August 16th.

VHS Collection is a trio of friends from NYC who’ve been compared to both MGMT and Passion Pit. As they prepare to release an EP, the trio have unleashed a brand new earworm named Lean that had me dancing in my seat to its vibrant beats and rich synths. The electro rock meets synthpop song marries the lively dance pop tendencies of RAC with some of The Killers’ more new wavey offerings. I could listen to this one on repeat, all day long. For more VHS Collection, head over to their Soundcloud. They’ll be releasing their self titled debut EP on December 14th.
