Heartache Is An Empty Room

Today is the day for Theo Vandenhoff, as the debut 5-track EP 'Heartache Is An Empty Room' arrives to digital platforms worldwide and strictly limited, not to mention beautiful, transparent yellow cassette! Listen now on your preferred thingamyjig.

So what more can we say?! Well, Theo Vandenhoff is a synthpop romantic from Toronto who creates pop music for the painfully lonely. Alienated by soccer culture, Theo's dad is largely responsible for his appreciation of melodramatic 80s music with catchy hooks.

“Heartache Is An Empty Room” was recorded with producer/teacher-turned-collaborator Jay Merrow (Twin Rains). In contrast to their close working relationship, themes of uncertainty and isolation circulate through the record.

“On the nose, wrought with emotion and romantic.” – Theo muses, when asked to describe himself in just three words. “I’m the kind of guy that talks through movies with one-liners.”

The literal college drop-out has a ton of ambition celebrating the beauty of the moments in between. Despite grim circumstances, there is an overbearing sense of optimism - realistic yet absurd.

For his inauguration, we’ll be celebrating with a very special ‘live, live’ session from the bank vault on April 28. Before then, keep your eyes peeled for an industrial, minimalist yet maximalist music video and give the EP a spin!

Art and design for album is by Isabel Glasgow (@hauntedyachtclub).
