Vieon is a four piece electronic outfit led by Matt Wild, with VJ Adrian Thompson, sound engineer Stephen Dorphin and keyboardist Ricardo Autobahn. Their epic and immersive sound is inspired by 70s and 80s electronic film soundtracks and lush synthpop filtered through a long-time appreciation for post-rock and intelligent dance music.
Their debut album The Sound of the Future was followed by concept album Fly By Light, dealing with themes of exploration, loss and opportunity. It was an immediate hit with critics including Emily Oldfield of Louder Than War who described it as “a trip you certainly won’t regret taking… powerful music opening up new mind space”.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Vieon have raised their profile dramatically in recent years with a series of engaging audio-visual shows in the UK and Europe famed for their dramatic and ambitious scope, including banks of synthesisers, theremin, keytar, live-produced projections and synchronised light display. These culminated at the end of 2019 in the sold out Lost Worlds Live shows in Coventry and Manchester. The band are looking forward to 2022 with an expanded live show, new music and more collaborations in the pipeline.
