VHS Collection are an electronic indie rock band from New York City known for their kaleidoscope-synth sounds and high energy live shows. Having recorded with Brooklyn based producer Abe Seiferth (LCD Soundsystem, Yeasayer, RAC, Bear in Heaven), VHS Collection are set to release their debut EP in November 2015.
The three core members of VHS Collection, James Bohannon (vocals, guitars) Conor Cook (vocals, guitars, synth), and Nils Vanderlip (vocals, guitars, piano) have been playing music together in one form or another since they were kids. In 2014, they formed VHS Collection and began to put together some synth and guitar focused tracks. Encouraged by the passionate responses they received after posting their songs online, the guys began performing around NYC eventually playing at The Studio at Webster Hall, Mercury Lounge, and Baby’s All Right.
In a review of their recent sold-out show at Mercury Lounge, Deli Magazine said, “What we’ve got here are some smooth male vocals, drum machine, buzzy synths and other keys, tastefully dipping into gameboy-fingers/80’s-smoke-and-lasers-land. You might wind up dancing despite yourself.”
VHS Collection will be performing at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on 12/18 followed by a nationwide tour during the spring and summer 2016 to promote their debut EP.
