The Dutch duo Vicetone is back with their newest track from their forthcoming “Departing Reality” EP – scheduled for a release this summer. “The World Has A Heartbeat” is a very special record to these Platinum-certified artists, as it throws back to their signature sound that the listeners and their fans know from Vicetone‘s earlier hits. Fusing breathy vocals and cinematic melodies, and even guitar instrumentals with a funky and digitized drop, “The World Has A Heartbeat” is both emotionally charged and dancefloor-friendly. The record follows Vicetone‘s recent single “Dopamine Junkie” and precedes the full EP coming out this summer and Vicetone‘s EP-backed tour. Keep an eye out for the drop and tour dates coming soon!
“This song is very special to us. The sound of the drop is inspired by the classic Vicetone sound of ‘Nevada‘ and ‘Walk Thru Fire,’ but with a fresh mix of our newer sound as well. We’re so excited to share this with our fans and hope the melody and music resonate with people.” – Vicetone
Since forming in 2012, Vicetone have brought both sophisticated musicality and untamed imagination to all of their output. Musicians/producers Ruben den Boer and Victor Pool craft every song with profound attention to detail, creating an emotionally charged brand of dance music that’s led them to amass over 1 billion combined streams across all platforms to date and brought them global notoriety. In all of their material, Vicetone taps into the creative chemistry they discovered upon writing their first track together in college. Bound by a passion for groundbreaking dance music, the duo made their debut with 2012’s “Harmony” and promptly began landing gigs around Europe, eventually bringing their exhilarating live show to festivals around the world. As their global following grew exponentially, Vicetone soon took North America and Asia by storm. Successes include their 2019 single “Something Strange“, a #1 hit on SiriusXM‘s BPM channel, “Nevada” (over 212 million streams on Spotify), and a viral hit with “Astronomia” (almost 310 million streams on Spotify alone) – the track that soundtracked a global TikTok meme, quickly amassing over 1 million combined daily streams, which is certified Gold in France and Germany and also reaching Platinum in Norway, Sweden, and Finland. It was also top 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 and the 2nd most Shazamed song worldwide. Delivering their most sonically ambitious body of work yet, Vicetone released their debut album – “Legacy,” on April 2nd, 2021 via Monstercat. Summer 2023 sees the release of their EP titled “Departing Reality.”
