Cole Vincent is a Canadian musician most known for his role as a guitarist in the indie-pop act Latka, which made waves across western Canada, including a Western Canadian Music Award nomination in 2014. Moving forward from this chapter in his musical career, Vincent found himself exploring musical genres closer to his heart; rock, metal and punk all make him feel at home. Currently completing his debut album under the name A Vicious Kind (AVK), Vincent has reached a stage of musical composition where he is comfortable with all roles, from writing music and lyrics, to playing key roles in the production of each track. With local engineer Jordan Voth and studio drummer Pascal Courcelles joining him in delivering his vision for AVK, Vincent seeks to explore his musical influences with no restrictions. The debut single “W.T.W.C.” (Wounds That We Carry) explores these influences with a lyrical representation of Vincent’s transition to adult life and struggle with mental health and its effects on relationships and self identity. The culmination of these themes is found in the climactic bridge, pushing the boundaries of the otherwise pop-punk track into the stratosphere as a new beginning has been found. That new beginning is AVK.
