NORDIC GI­ANTS THINK BIG

Prog - - News -

Post-rock duo an­nounce mul­ti­me­dia project for the au­tumn.

Nordic Gi­ants are spread­ing pos­i­tiv­ity with the in­de­pen­dent re­lease of a short film and sound­track on October 20. The mys­te­ri­ous masked duo, whose real iden­ti­ties are shrouded in mystery, say the aim of Am­plify Hu­man Vi­bra­tion’s up­lift­ing theme is to help “raise the col­lec­tive con­scious­ness of the planet”.

“This project is our small way of re­mind­ing peo­ple that there’s so much pos­i­tiv­ity in the world, de­spite the fear-led nar­ra­tive of­ten por­trayed by the main­stream me­dia,” say Rôka and Loki via email.“This film will fol­low some in­spir­ing peo­ple and their unique jour­neys, from a Columbian pho­tog­ra­pher chang­ing lives with just his cam­era to a female swim­mer brav­ing seven of the tough­est seas.”

The seven-track re­lease fol­lows on from 2015’s A Séance Of Dark Delu­sions and 7 Depths Of Con­scious­ness and unites the pair’s at­mo­spheric sounds with guest vo­cals from long-term col­lab­o­ra­tor Freyja.

“This sound­track is a blend of all our styles, sounds, dy­nam­ics and pre­vi­ous re­leases,” they say. “It has some louder tracks with big pi­ano riffs and drums sim­i­lar to the likes of To­gether or Evolve Or Per­ish, mixed with some qui­eter am­bi­ent tracks.”

Nordic Gi­ants are tour­ing the UK and Europe this au­tumn. For the full list of shows, see www.nordic­giants.co.uk. NRS
