about

VNION's debut EP "Ceremony"  envelopes the listener in VNION. A theatrical, melancholic, relatable world, where we are all silhouettes & the near-twenty minutes are gone in what feels like moments. Its many textures, layered rhythms and duelling vocals create a space to hide within as it passes.

– Katrina Hahling, Lustful Wonderful

about

VNION Melbourne, Australia

VNION was conceived with a clear vision of what it should be; an entrancing, shared experience weaving its way beyond the conscious & connecting its audience; a distant, yet familiar sound allowing the listener to find their own meaning.


Meticulously constructed through a shared desire to escape monotony & routine, their intricate music calls your imagination to slip & join them on a journey.

Track Name: No Threat
There is danger here, in these tired bricks
But no one is desperate – they feel no need
They know no threat – it's left well alone
All are still
They swim in sun, they swim in sun


(They come and go)
[Leave nothing at all]
(To them we are shadows)
[They have the light]
(Move now; they test us)
[They press us against us]
(Here is comes again)
[The beginning repeating]

(So much noise)
[It blinds us]
(It fills our heads)
[With everything; with nothing]
(There’s so much noise)
[Let it go, let it go]
(Where will it end)
Track Name: Higher Up
VERSE 1

Movement, circles, dust
This is the sum of us
We set ourselves higher up
We control all we can

Is it ever enough

How much of this is luck
How much runs from above
It's all we are, all we're not
We control all we can

It's never enough


CHORUS 1

Is it ever enough
It's never enough
Is it ever enough
It's never enough
[Let the dust be all that we’re not]


VERSE 2

When is it right to give up
We stumble into this love
Trying so hard to be a part
We have done all we can

Enough is enough

Our circles run far apart
The rest spiral above
Here we are kings with words enough
We have done all we can

It’s never enough


CHORUS 2

Enough is enough
It's never enough
Enough is enough
Enough is enough
[Let the dust be all that we’re not]
Track Name: Together
VERSE 1

I wish I could, seem normal as we make our way
I wish I could, still, hear every word
She hopes for me
She knows that I am hoping for her too
But tonight is special
And the sting is gone
(I’ve failed)


CHORUS 1

To be the one who knows you,
[It’s not enough to reach you]
To shield you from the fray, I've failed
[It’s not enough to know you’re there]


VERSE 2

She runs through me
Even in this place,
We stand together
But the sting is gone
(I’ve failed)


CHORUS 2

To be the one who knows you,
[It’s not enough to reach you]
To shield you from the fray, I've failed
[It’s not enough to know you’re there]
Track Name: Let Us Forget Who We Are
VERSE 1

Help me, please stay
Can’t take, this place
Take me, away
So sick, cant wait

They say, trust us you're safe
Do as we say


CHORUS 1

Run away, leave behind your love
Hide away, forget the life you have
(Let us forget who we are)


VERSE 2

Leave me, too late
[Forget the life we had]
You're not, to blame
Useless, its fate
Leave me, escape

They say, trust us you're safe
Do as we say


CHORUS 2

Run away, leave behind your love
Hide away, forget the life you have
(Let us forget who we are)
