VÖÖDÖÖ PREMIERES NEW SINGLE "THE SECRET"
After two released singles and heavy rotation at one of the most prominent rock channels in Norway, Radio Rock, and air-play time on NRK P3, the Bergen-based band Vöödöö is now continuing with their heavysoulrock sound. The band is currently premiering their third single titled “The Secret”, off their upcoming album, to be released later this year. “The Secret” is an embodiment of soulful rock vibes. With its catchy guitar riffs and solos, sonorous melodies synchronized with hypnotic rhythm and uplifting vocal parts, this song is your perfect summer soundtrack.
The band has commented: "This is a song about the struggle to let go of something that once was your everything, but now drags you to the darkest depths of your mind. All the questions to answers you will never know. It can turn in to an obsession if you feed it…the need to know. A free mind is a free soul, and to free your mind you gotta let it all go. That is The Secret.”"
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.
Their 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.
