NEW YORK, NY | MARCH 29TH, 2019 – Electronic alternative rock band VISTA have released their new single, “Eat (I Must),” available NOW on all digital music platforms. Written together by members Hope Vista and Greg Almeida, “Eat (I Must)” tells a haunting tale. The first-person narrative delves into the grim details of the guilt and shame felt by lead vocalist Hope Vista throughout her struggles with body dysmorphia and anorexia. The band experiments with the usage of a vocoder throughout the track, but still maintains their signature dark synth and modern rock elements to piece together the evocative story. VISTA continues to prove that they will keep climbing – “Eat (I Must)” is their most honest and emotive track to date. They hope to spark a safe space for healthy conversation about disordered eating, as well as encourage listeners to ask for help if they feel they are struggling with something similar.
An electronically-tinged alternative rock band, NY-based outfit VISTA originally formed in late 2015. Comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist Greg Almeida, the band combines both modern alternative rock and electronic influences to create their unique sound. VISTA released their debut 4-track EP “VERSUS” shortly after their original inception, in which their debut single “On The Brink” debuted worldwide on idobi radio. Their name hasn’t been shy in the press, since; the band has garnered praise from outlets such as Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Substream, and AXS. In 2017, VISTA supported Fueled By Ramen artist Against The Current at Irving Plaza, gained idobi rotation with their single “Henchmen,” and completed two headlining US tours to support their 2017 sophomore EP “Long Live,” which upon release made its’ way onto three different iTunes charts. Most recently in 2018, VISTA released two singles, “Witch Hunt” (earning 135,000 Spotify streams) and “Born For Blood”, completed their third US tour “The Bloodlust Tour,” and played multiple support dates with Set It Off (Fearless Records). “Witch Hunt,” produced by ZK Productions, premiered worldwide on idobi radio and earned video rotation in Journeys’ stores nationwide.
VISTA’s new single “Eat (I Must),” released in March 2019, narrates the inner turmoil and guilt felt by lead vocalist Hope Vista throughout her personal struggles with both body dysmorphia and an eating disorder. With “Eat (I Must),” VISTA’s signature dark, synth-laden rock sound is still present, but lyrically, the band approaches the haunting track with the goal of sparking a larger conversation about the danger of eating disorders and cultivating a safe, open forum for listeners to discuss their experiences. “Eat (I Must)” is available on all digital music platforms NOW.
