Published Jan 16, 2018Look Vibrant have revealed plans for the debut full-length record. Titled The Up Here Place, it will be self-released on March 23.
Songwriters Matt Murphy and Justin Lazarus initially met as child actors in Toronto, but their latest musical offering was written over two years in Montreal when both guys were attending university.
The upcoming record apparently hears Look Vibrant finding a happy medium between the bubbly indie pop of 2015 EP Only Qualms and the band's subsequent ventures into the realm of pure noise music.
According to a press release, The Up Here Place explores "naive ambition, the constant need to reach ever growing heights, and the inevitable sharp drop that comes in its wake."
As for the title of the record, Murphy said it references "that illusory point of stability, where every moment of your day falls smoothly into place, and nothing feels arduous or hopeless."
Look Vibrant have offered up a point of entry to that place with lead single "My Nerves." It arrives with an accompanying music video that features the band sitting through a strange candlelit party, complete with Cheetos, cake and Cheerios.
