"Vividly Dim, EP "Quicksand" Review"

Whether it's the soulful seductive sounds of lead singer Chasidy Ryan, blending with the cool but unconventional guitar sounds provided by Joni Stephens, on "Tell Me I'm Wrong"...or...the more Pop/Punk beat of the final cut "End Of Time", it is evident to me that this mix of young musicians has the potential to produce some profound
sounds, and make their mark on the New York music scene. - Streetcred Music Critique

"Vividly Dim EP Release at Goodbye Blue Monday"

The first impression you get from Vividly Dim can vary significantly depending on what song you first here from them. Though the band has a unified, cohesive sound, their songs traverse a spectrum from modest to forward, playing with subtle sounds and showy, forceful vocals. The duo have translated their post-punk inspirations into something more subdued. The bass-driven songs relegate the chugging to place in the mix, allowing Chasidy ‘s soulful vocals to take the lead. The earnest delivery has a very mellow, brooding effect, but is not without animation or energy. - Bushwickbk Music Blog

Quicksand EP (Available Now on Bandcamp)



Vividly Dim was born in the living room of its two founding members Joni Stephens and Chasidy Ryan. The couple both shared an eclectic taste in music. They had no problem starting the project as an acoustic one. First writing together “Brother Bond” based on a tragic loss they had in common the loss of their older brothers. Next was “Travesty” which touched on racial discrimination and how it effects an image-based society. It was clear they
were on to something.
Later on two amazingly talented musicians joined the indie duo:Doni Lee Roman and Ashley Jayde. They were the missing elements needed. Doni Lee Roman a self taught bassist learned listening to greats like Flea,Bootsy Collins and Tool's Justin Chancellor. Ashley mastered trombone, violin and guitar at a very young age, but was looking for an instrument she was truly one with. In 2005 she watched a video by Sheila E which inspired her to take up drumming and she's never looked back.
Now together as “VD” they have several successful shows under their belts and a steadily growing fanbase. Their first EP "Quicksand" received rave reviews from local music blogs and indie magazine The Deli. They also have been feature on several compilations including Punk Across The Globe, PoDunk Radio's Punk Vol. 1, and Vents Magazine Present's "Infest". They are currently rehearsing for upcoming shows and working on their full-length LP “Wasteland Paradise".
