Vision Video is a 4 piece band that takes from the best elements of postpunk, goth rock and punk rock.
Their songs utilize catchy hooks similar to the while still remaining intense, dark and nostalgic.
Their influences are broad, ranging from the shimmery sadness of the Cure and the Chameleons, but also taking a biting edge from the Clash and the Replacements.
The band is lead in spirit by singer and guitarist Dusty Gannon who is a former firefighter and veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Much of his writing relates to PTSD, trauma, and mental illness. He sings in a broad range, often in harmony with co-vocalist and keyboardist Emily Freedock, whom is a classically trained pianist. Jason Fusco on drums is an experience on its own. Tom Ashton of the seminal 80s goth rock band, the March Violets, also will be touring on bass for the band in 2023.
