What happens when you give three queer musicians a Tinder account? They find a fourth and start a band. VIAL is a Minneapolis, MN-based band, founded in 2019 by four best friends who just wanted to write and play the music they wanted to hear in Minnesota. With keytarist Taylor Kraemer (she/they), guitarist KT Branscom (they/them), drummer Katie Fischer (she/they), and bassist Kate Kanfield (they/them), VIAL brings their genre-bending cascade of sound into electrifying live performances. Songs that smack you in the face: Rage-written speed runs about running over misogynists (“Roadkill”) are followed by a head bopping, cheek-blushing queer love songs to tingle your toes (“Violet”); VIAL is an indie punk powerhouse who knows how to adapt their sound, and themselves. Adaptability is one of VIAL’s core strengths and this allowed them to grow in new ways during 2020’s days of quarantine by creating a wide audience on TikTok and other social media while revving up to release their blossoming new record.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
