HBO’s upcoming seriesÂ VinylÂ is a story told through the eyes of Bobby Cannvale’s Richie Finestra, which is appropriate since the images on the official key art for the show reflect exactly what Richie sees.
In the poster below, Richie wears sunglasses and appearsÂ absolutely transfixed on what he’s seeing and hearing. Then, in the frames of the sunglasses, we’re shown the images of the band he sees, but it’s not even about what he’s watching–it’s about what he’s listening to. “He didn’t see the future,” the poster declares. “He heard it.”
Vinyl‘s 10-episode first season kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 9 p.m. on HBO. Check out the official key artÂ for the show below, along with HBO’s description of the series.
