Playing To Vapors explores questions in their music, rather than trying to provide answers. Is there a relationship between geometry & music? Can one composition be objectively better than another? Do sounds bare significance in terms of representing specific emotions and ideas? Each individual of the five-piece contributes to the song writing in a unique way. However collectively, the group strives to experiment with tonality, rhythm, melody, and harmony, while still keeping the message relatable leaving the overall idea simple yet impactful. A beautiful chemistry exposes itself when all the elements of PTV come together.
We sat down with the band prior to their show at Backstage Café on Saturday April 25th and Bunbury Music Festival on Saturday June 6th!
Give us some backstory on Playing To Vapors…
Playing to Vapors started as a handful of high school students from Columbus, OH who shared a similar taste in music. Since that time, our music has evolved into what you hear on “A Glitch In A Void”. We practice three times a week, and we write as a unit. PTV is very much that, ‘a unit’. We’re all best of friends, and simply love writing & playing music together.
What can we expect from a live show?
We pride ourselves on being a tight rock band. We emphasize the drum and bass groove when we write, and I think it comes across well in the live environment. Also, Stokes and DiSabato do a great job of recreating the craziness that’s on the record. Overall, you can expect a solid rock show from start to finish.
What other bands at Bunbury Music Festival are you looking forward to seeing / hanging out with?
Our friends from Kid Runner, Go Analog, and Pluto Revolts will be there, so we’ll definitely hang out with them. As for the band that I am most excited to see… The Decemberists. I’ve been meaning to see them play since the first time I heard “The Island”.
What is next for Playing To Vapors?
The goal for Playing To Vapors in the coming months will be to promote “A Glitch In A Void” as much as possible through touring. We are proud of our new record, and we want the world to hear it. After that, we have some new material that we are itching to work on.
