Vicky von Vicky Reminds Listeners That Money Isn’t Everything on Focus Track, “Be Still My Heart,” from Broken Chairs EP


In 2019, after almost two decades, the Toronto indie rock band Vicky von Vicky reunited, paying tribute to their late friend and former bandmate Andrew Pricesmith. This “second chance” allowed Vicky von Vicky to regroup and return to the Toronto music scene with a renewed focus.

Their uplifting new EP, Broken Chairs, was mostly written in the week songwriter Michael Wynn was laid off from his full time job. Some of these melodies came straight from his dreams, and together with producer Nixon Boyd (Hollerado, Dizzy), they put together this rocking, five track EP. 

Be Still My Heart” is about someone talking to their soul or heart, and getting them to try to calm down or take stock of where they are in life. In some ways the narrator has not been true to themselves, i.e. the separation from their heart and what makes them human. Wynn envisioned the narrator as someone who once deemed making money as their primary focus and had lost sight of the important things. Making money may have been the most important thing in this narrator’s life in “Be Still My Heart,” but they soon realize that money means nothing when you are no longer around.

Vicky von Vicky is a Toronto indie rock band that originated in the late 1990s, featuring Michael Wynn (Melted Wings) on guitar and vocals, Rolston Miller on bass, and Tom Nesbitt (The Others) on guitar. Vicky von Vicky’s distinctive sound draws inspiration from punk, grunge, classic rock, and rock, soul and hip-hop. However, their music is not a genre mash-up. They delve into themes of love, loss, and life experiences, expressing themselves with candidness, vulnerability and a big serving of humor. The result is Vicky von Vicky’s music.
