With their new album “Funhouse Mirror”, Vinyl Floor took a diary-like approach to rock music, with the music here exploring themes of love, loss, hope, adversity, and everything in life. This music was actually written during the pandemic and features raw, honest, and relatable lyrics backed by powerful instruments to get any rock lover feeling the vibe.
Listening to this impressive body of work, I feel that meticulous attention to detail and nuance are often crucial elements in transferring good ideas into great songs, and that is exactly what happens here. And having the benefit of experience and a fresh perspective like Vinyl Floor does can help artists fine-tune their creations in a way that best expresses their intentions and engages their listeners.

The intro is attention-grabbing, with that vibrant combination of guitars, drums, and bass setting the tone for this outstanding piece of work.
You know a good song actually paints pictures in your mind, but what’s more, a great song like “Anything You Want” connects the listener with their humanity and feelings. This is an aesthetic piece that is romance-fueled and one that really hits the listener right in the feels.

With this track, the band elevates the listener spiritually, somehow bringing them closer to the greater force that many refer to as god, the universe, or destiny. There is something unexplainable in this performance—a phenomenon that can’t be explained by logic that really makes it beautiful, haunting, and transportive. And this, coming from the more melodic and less abrasive side of rock, is another addition to the glamour.
Thomas Charlie Pedersen breathes life into the lyrical narrative of this masterpiece with a genuine tonality and expressive voice that help inject the track with elegance, depth, and emotional resonance.
“Clock with No Hands” comes off as divine and is quite charismatic.
