We are very excited to announce this signing and to welcome one of the strongest alternative rock bands out of all Norway: Vöödöö! Vöödöö will release their debut album later this year, and today they can offer the first taste of it with their single titled‘Lay Me To Rest’.
The band comments on the signing with Indie Recordings: “To sign with Indie Recordings is huge to us. We’ve already been fans of the bands in their roster and we like what they are doing for Norwegian rock, both nationally and internationally”, and they continue: “’Lay Me To Rest’ is about the fight against your inner demons. It’s heavy, tough and vulnerable at the same time, and it defines our heavysoulrock sound”.
The unique sound of Vöödöö comes from the bands wide span in musical background an approach. Guitarist Sveinung Bukve is a gear-freak with a vast selection of pedals, sometimes combined to create overwhelming huge effects more similar to an organ or a spacecraft than an actual guitar, sometimes more controlled to cut through the mix with in-your-face riffs.
The rhythm section is all about hard beats and hard bass fingering, though dynamic, it is about making you feel the beat, not only in your eardrums but through the torso and into the home of your soul. Last but definitely not least Vöödöö will charm you all the way with the high-pitched mind-baffling vocals of the theatrical Gøran. The soundscape is reminiscent of SPAN, mixed together with the early Queens of the Stone Age, topped off with vocals that compares to Muse and Mars Volta.
