VYÖNI – new album released

Music from the silent forests and the stormy seas…

VYÖNI is the studio-based playground for musician, composer and producer Kim-Frode H.Wøhni (b.1976). Inspired by early 70’s progressive rock, jazz, post-rock, yoik and even more cinematic landscapes, many ingredients are thrown into the mix. All of the instrumental tunes are dynamically evolving around melodic themes and grooves, both improvised and arranged. Truly unique blend!

So remember a while back I was singing the praises of a new Norwegian band that reminded me a bit of Landberk or Finnish bands like Malady? The band is VYÖNI, and now they’ve released a first single from their forthcoming album. I did master the album, but no-one’s paying me to tell you how much I adore this band and album. All-instrumental, and mixing that Nordic prog vibe with some more modern aesthetics leaning towards post-rock. Do check it out!
