Talking about the new track Adam Janzi says: “It is a pleasure to share ‘Head Mounted Sideways’ with you taken from our upcoming ‘Live From The Pool’ release! We recorded this last year in an abandoned military camp in Denmark. Despite the cold and the humidity, we had a great time being there all day and all night into the early morning. Between loading in all the gear, setting it up, recording and packing down, we had the time to visit the abandoned area and take it all in. The atmosphere of the place, the abandoned halls and the memories that might still dwell there influenced our show and gave us a sense of being part of another world. Hopefully, we can bring you into that world and give you a glimpse of what we experienced there!”
They’ve previously released the videos for the stunning performances of “Straight Lines“ and “Inside Your Fur.”
In September 2021, VOLA performed an intimate show in a stunning live setting. ‘Live From The Pool’ took place at the swimming pool of the abandoned Auderød military camp in North Zealand near Copenhagen, Denmark. Designed by the world-famous architect Henning Larsen this defunct building has become part of the Auderød nature park. A place where nature encounters the mysteries of a once existing military base, ready to be explored.
Creating a unique experience, the bands’ genre-melding music collaborates with visionary Danish audio-visual artist collective Vertigo, where light, nature, music, and concrete meet.
The show features incredible performances from their back catalogue, including “Alien Shivers,” “Stray The Skies,” “Whaler,” “Ghosts”, as well as songs from their latest album Witness. Fans outside Denmark can hearnew songs such as “Straight Lines,” “These Black Claws,” Head Mounted Sideways”, and more live for the first time.
VOLA are Asger Mygind (vocals/guitar), Martin Werner (keys), Nicolai Mogensen (bass) and Adam Janzi (drums).
