Melbourne, Florida three-piece, The Vivid's debut EP, "Don't Wake the Neighbors" is a culmination of firsts for the band, including the recent addition of Adkins on drums as well as a self-taught crash course on the finer points of mixing audio recorded with bargain bin microphones in the acoustic equivalent of a tin can. The majority of the six month D.I.Y. production entailed cramped closet recording sessions and sleepless exiles to storage unit No. 457, where ideas were shared and shaped into their eventual state.
The Vivid draw influence from key moments throughout rock history, taking cues from the bold onslaught of proto punk and noise rock, to the raw and characteristically daring innovation of 90's post hardcore, grunge, and shoegaze, to the modern focus and intensity of 2000's garage rock revival and its ensuing catalog of genre-blurring bands.
On one level, "Don't Wake the Neighbors" is an unabashed homage to the primal desire to rock the fuck out. On another, it is a patchwork tapestry of moments meticulous and thoughtful, effortless and intense.
