From meager means to mounting momentum, the past 7 years have spelled nothing but progress for Austin-outfit Vinyl Dharma. The band’s knack for pouring layered electronica atop sultry vocals – presented by lead singer Johnny Dharma – amounts to an epic live show of pulsing, dance-inducing electronica. Outfitted with a strong array of ringers, such as “The Sunshine Rave,” the band’s launch from idyllic South Texas to coveted main stages in “the live music capital of the world,” Austin, Texas, has been a journey of inventiveness and personal poise.
Reviving the new wave drawl of New Order, as well as melding elements of bands like The Beatles, Radiohead, Doves, The Cure and Depeche Mode Vinyl Dharma’s sound has a clear air of electricity. With the upcoming release of their new album, "The Greater Perfect System," and a sweeping victory at MTV2's On the Rise Contest, Vinyl Dharma is a band with newfound success and boundless prospects.
Upon winning the MTV2 contest, the band impressed the major music channel and decided to visit Austin to film the band's live performance at Stubb's and capture the essence of their daily lives for on-air promos. The on-air promos are expected to air nationwide as MTV2 features "Austin Week" December 22, 2008.
