Villainest is a Sega Genesis-based electro-rock band based in Toronto. Formed in late 2013, Villainest’s sound is a rollercoaster fusion of programmed vintage videogame synthesizers, electrifying live instrumentation and killer vocal harmonies. Villainest’s self-produced debut album ‘A Vision of Light’ is inspired by their deep love of genre cinema. From the action movie propulsion of ‘Slow Motion Gunfights’ to the slow-build film noir of ‘Stalker’, the album takes lyrical inspiration from vintage John Carpenter, Twin Peaks, Japanese monster movies, 80s teen classics and sci-fi epics to explore themes of family, friendship, jealousy and ambition, making peace with a difficult past and facing an unknowable future.
