Review:: Stop Motion | Vinyl Thief

Tennessee electro-rock quartet Vinyl Thief recently released their new EP titled, Stop Motion. With lyrics like “Come with me / We’ll go as far as we / Can see indefinitely” and “So let’s go / Drive through the night / When darkness is closing in,” the EP encourages listeners to live their lives to the fullest without regrets.

In a recent interview, Vinyl Thief’s lead singer Grayson Proctor stated, “The inspiration behind these songs on the EP is an escape. We tend to run away from the things we don’t want to deal with. We have to really force ourselves to slow down and see the bigger picture." 

It’s a good thing that Grayson Proctor is in an electro-rock band. His vocals have the ability to make you feel calm or instantly excite you, as electronic music should do! Vinyl Thief perfectly pairs the electronic sound of synths and keys with the rock sound of guitar and drums. The result is nothing short of captivating.

I can only imagine how incredible Stop Motion sounds live. Electronic music is always fun to dance to in concert. Vinyl Thief has upcoming performances in New York, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. If you live in those areas and are in the mood to go to a concert, check them out!
