Alternative Pop singer/multi-instrumentalist, VAINES has announced his signing to Hopeless Records and shared his new single, “Punchdrunk“. Watch the video now below.
VAINES is Hopeless Records newest signing – here to shatter genre boundaries and break the traditional recording model. VAINES not only writes his own music but also plays all of the instruments, records all of the mixes, and produces all of his own songs — right in his own bedroom.
“I’ve always put more weight on music in my life than learning the business or killing social media.” said Jared Gaines on his new alternative pop project VAINES.
VAINES moved to Los Angeles in early 2017 and crashed with a friend with $200 in studio equipment and got to work writing any and all styles of music and honing his craft. In his songwriting style, VAINES will often write things in a reverse perspective to tackle how his distance and fear of commitment can make other people feel lonely. It helps him process how to be a better person and how to correct some of his self-diagnosed “toxic behavior”. Songwriting is how he processes and pushes through the obstacles he faces.
With his newly announced signing to Hopeless Records and an upcoming full US tour with industry veterans Emarosa, VAINES has already achieved so much more than he dreamed when he moved to LA – there is no ceiling to the future.
