April George (singer, songwriter, pianist, violinist) and mattVISTA (producer, composer, bassist) make up the genre-bending duo April + VISTA. Hailing from the DMV (DC, Maryland, VA) they pull from an eclectic range of influences–fusing traditional elements with futuristic soundscapes, quirky beats, and immersive storytelling.
Their music has been featured on notable outlets including KCRW, KEXP, BBC 1Xtra with Jamz Supernova, Beats1 with Julie Adenuga, and Beats1 with Ebro. They’ve also garnered nods from a wide range of collectives and publications including The Fader, DJ Booth, Soulection, Saint Heron, and Majestic Casual.
The band has taken their dynamic live act to a wide range of venues worldwide, opening for notable acts including Nightmares on Wax, Mura Masa, and Kllo. They've also toured with Swedish psych-pop band Little Dragon and fellow DMV artist GoldLink.
Their third EP, You Are Here, was released to critical acclaim on August 24, 2018 via Otherfeels Records.
