VÖÖDÖÖ OUT WITH NEW SINGLE "DOTS"
After their first single and soon-to-be-classic “Lay Me To Rest” reached major recognition and heavy rotation at one of the biggest 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 by releasing the second single titled “Dots”.
“Dots” is your perfect rock, spring soundtrack of restlessness. The song is rich in texture, with catchy, devilish melodies that seep into your mind and make you introspect. The song is layered with raw guitar riffs and uplifting, expressive solos, perfectly blended with vocals of the brilliant Gøran Stavang Skage.
The band commented: "Dots is the tale of the devil on your shoulder. That seductive voice that teases your ear with promises of immediate happiness without future consequence. We can't always trust our own mind to tell us the truth we need to hear. Sometimes we get tempted to sign the dotted line at the bottom of our devil’s contract?"
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.
