Phoenix, Ariz. (January 14, 2022) – Vinylly, the dating app that matches users based on music compatibility, was the focus for EDM duo TyDi and JES’ music video for their new song Just Believe, which was released on Jan. 14.
The music video addresses the obstacles and pitfalls that many singles face as they stumble through the dating world. It follows six individuals who go on various failed dates, each time seeing signs that point them to downloading Vinylly. Eventually, they all end up at a record store and find their musical match while browsing through albums, ultimately building a true connection through their shared love for music.
“When I first heard this song, it instantly transported me back to the reason why I created Vinylly in the first place,” said Rachel Van Nortwick, Vinylly’s CEO and founder. “Music has always been a major part of my life and I always knew that music held the key to connecting people on a deeper level, helping to form a solid foundation for lasting relationships.”
Just Believe uses Vinylly to make a statement about the impact technology and music play in the modern dating era. The video demonstrates how Vinylly’s technology can lead users to find people with whom they can connect on a deep and intimate level through music.
“Hope is one of the most important things to me. Sometimes it’s the difference between existing and living,” said JES when asked about the lyrics. “We’ve all been through enough weird dates, and it can be hard to stay focused with so many things vying for our attention every day.”
The juxtaposition of TyDi & JES’ music in tandem with Vinylly’s story creates a powerful conversation on the trials and tribulations of the modern dating world, as well as how important it is to be true to who you are in order to find your perfect match.
“The narrative-based video helps to showcase that Vinylly is not just an app but a passion project meant to create real relationships and connections,” said Van Nortwick. “The collaboration created an authentic and natural marketing experience for Vinylly by using music to share the brand’s story in an organic way.”
