Vermillion Heights - Losing Sleep (2019)

With the release of their new single Losing Sleep, Vermillion Heights takes the best parts of a few classic genres and breeds a sound current and familiar, but their own.  Laced with an emotionally charged vocal approach, an edgy chorus, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems.
“The song is about writing to help with depression, but I think any form of coping mechanism could take the place of writing for other people. It’s about the confusion felt in creating something appealing out of sadness or pain. Taking depression and turning it into something constructive, then using that outlet as a way to assure yourself that you will be okay eventually.” explains songwriter Sam Fassler of the band’s single.
Although the singles do speak volumes for the band, to get a real understanding for where Vermillion Heights is coming from, their previous Self Titled EP release is a necessary listen.
“We released our self titled EP in November of 2018 after being a band for only a few months. Vermillion Heights is still wet behind the ears, but due to playing in previous bands together, we all jive very well. We are hitting it hard from day one and not cutting any corners. Our sound seems to evolve every time we practice. Someone will have an idea for a song that is so wildly different from the last one we wrote, but by the time guitar leads are added and everyone else throws in their ideas, the ‘difference’ of the song stands out but still sounds like a Vermillion Heights song.” says Fassler about the progression of the band’s songwriting.
So where did Vermillion heights get their start? Made up of Sam Fassler, James Dotzler, Cody Blackwood, and Cody Oachs, the lineup consisted of players that met through performing in other bands together. Oachs ended up having instrumentals written for the Self Titled EP and was looking for a vocalist for the project. Recruiting Cody Blackwood to write vocal parts for the songs, everyone realized pretty quickly he was there to stay. Soon enough Blackwood filled the spot as full time vocalist. Once their vocalist was on board, the two Cody’s convinced Sam Fassler to join, and shortly after came James Dotzler on bass.
“Losing Sleep” is a prequel to several more singles set to be released through the first half of 2019 while the band finishes work on their full length album. The band agrees that the song is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.
