JNL Presents: VIKINGS | ELECTRIC LIFE
VIKINGS | ELECTRIC LIFE
- FROM THE PRESS RELEASE -
“Following the successful reception of VIKINGS' Animal Kingdom EP released March 10, 2017 with lead single 'Burning Man', mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Snow Patrol, Garbage) comes ELECTRIC LIFE, VIKINGS' third studio release and their most realized to date.
The soundtrack of one persons journey through alternate dimensions, ELECTRIC LIFE plays as a memoir of love, loss and hope. This collection of songs was cultivated and refined trough multiple tours, festivals and endless studio hours. Recorded, mixed and co-produced by French-house pioneer JNL, their vision came to fruition through collaboration and exploration. Pop meets dark and dark meets the dance floor. This is ELECTRIC LIFE.
Holed up in the pop culture hinterland of Winnipeg, VIKINGS has been crafting big melodies and headlining festivals rarely leaving the walls of their prairie ice palace. It's not often anyone breaks out of here – but VIKINGS has places to be.
Focusing on those big sounds and the spaces in between, VIKINGS' music is equal parts dance-worthy and expansive synth trip. Featuring the earworm vocals of Josh Youngson, long ago punk-singer now falsetto-wielding crowd-mover. He is flanked by two brothers – Dave and James McNabb, each manning a bastion of synths. Luke Janzen (drums) adds the foundation, taking VIKINGS out of the box and onto the dance floor. Recently joining the group - JNL, long time 5th unofficial member, rounds out the five-piece into a unforgettable live experience.”
CONGRATULATIONS to Dave, Josh, James, Luke, and all the family, friends and fans that have showed VIKINGS love over the past few years. This is an exciting first step in a long friendship.
