Focusing on big sounds and the spaces in between, VIKINGS’ music is equal parts dance-worthy and expansive synth trip. Their songs are filled with layers, heavy drums and catchy vocals – propelling their audiences along for a helluva party.
Vikings’ self-titled EP helped them establish a foundation in Winnipeg. The band is currently writing their debut full length album, which is being mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Garbage, Snow Patrol).
Vikings features the earworm vocals of Josh Youngson, long ago punk singer now pop 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.
