London, UK, February 29, 2024 – Vinylly is excited to announce the launch of their highly anticipated dating app for music lovers in the UK Google Play Store. The app is free to download, with optional in-app purchases for premium features. Music lovers and singles across the UK are invited to join the Vinylly community and connect with other like-minded individuals who share their passion for music.

Vinylly has already gained significant traction in the US and Canada, with tens of thousands of downloads and positive reviews pouring in. Users are delighted with the app’s unique concept and the ability to connect with like-minded individuals who appreciate the power of music in relationships.

In today’s world, finding a partner who shares the same taste in music has become increasingly important for millennials and Gen Z. Music is a powerful force that brings people together, and Vinylly aims to capitalize on this by creating a platform where users can find their perfect match with similar music preferences. Whether it’s rock, pop, hip-hop, or electronic, Vinylly ensures that users can connect with someone who truly understands their musical interests.

“We are thrilled to announce he Android version of Vinylly, available now in the UK” said Rachel Van Nortwick, CEO of Vinylly, “Just in time for festival season, Vinylly offers a user-friendly interface that allows users to easily browse profiles and connect with other music lovers. The app provides a seamless experience, with features such as music compatibility matching, private messaging, and the ability to create personalized playlists to share with potential matches.”

Inspired by her deep love for music and its ability to connect people, Van Nortwick launched Vinylly in 2019 and has been reinventing dating for music lovers since, helping them connect on a more personal level as opposed to relying on superficial profiles and swipes that often lead nowhere. Fueling Vinylly’s growth is traditional dating app fatigue, the popularity of streaming services, the resurgence of vinyl, and the abundance of music festivals and concerts.

“I have always thought a dating app should be substance over superficial. We focus on authenticity where users can be themselves and can easily connect with others using their music DNA, and that’s especially important in today’s world, where YPulse data shows music is the number one thing young people use to express themselves,” shared Van Nortwick.
