Norwegian alt-rockers Vöödöö have chosen to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their trailblazing debut record Ashes by releasing a brand new video for the album’s opening song of the same name. Everything Is Noise are therefore extremely honoured to exclusively premiere “Ashes” in all its visual glory.
Vöödöö champion the kind of subversive, grungy, and hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll heaviness that we all need more of in our musical diet, and this sense of cerebral grittiness is captivated amply in the “Ashes” video. Within it, you will find hope, passion, despair, and surrealism all tightly woven into a neat and thought-provoking narrative. Dig deep to unearth a good wealth of symbolic food for thought. It is the perfect visual accompaniment for an already great song.
Credit goes, then, for the talented and imaginative Troll Toftenes for the creation of this video. Credit is due also to Vöödöö themselves for the level of work gone into the production of their debut record. It is a glossy, well-conceived, and wonderfully emotive piece of work that deserves every accolade which comes its way. One can only wonder what happens next for the band. In the meantime, if you haven’t already sampled Ashes in its full unrivaled glory, then wait no more. Vöödöö are an outfit destined to rise into the limelight.
