It’s a thrilling time to be in VIKINGS – or a VIKINGS fan for that matter – as this Winnipeg foursome will soon release their forthcoming EP entitled Animal Kingdom. Today AMBY is pleased to give fans a look at what’s to come in the form of an exclusive premiere days ahead of its release.
Exploring the genre smashing of both hooky rock and synth-pop, the integration of diverse sounds shown on this EP is immaculate. Animal Kingdom opens with Burning Man, a slow-burning atmospheric groovy pop song and ends with my personal favourite, the sultry seventies disco-esque Queen of the Night. When asked about the release, VIKINGS shared with us;
“It’s individual stories that all take place in different extremes of life. A baron wasteland, a tropical jungle or the eye of a storm in an urban landscape. It’s about finding connections with other people when you least expect it and navigating those experiences at that exact moment in time.”
To celebrate its release, VIKINGS will perform a hometown show at The Good Will Social Club on the EP’s scheduled release date of March 10th. Exclusively stream Animal Kingdom on AMBY and follow updates from VIKINGS below.
