Danish/Swedish progressive rockers VOLA have released a new live clip of straight lines which you can watch below. It’s taken from the next one Live from the pool the band’s first-ever live release, which will be released by Mascot Records on April 1.
Live from the pool was recorded during the band’s intimate show at the swimming pool of the abandoned Auderød military camp in North Zealand near Copenhagen in September 2021. Designed by world-renowned architect Henning Larsen, this former building is now part of the Auderød Nature Park.
“The idea of Live from the pool was conceived at a time when it was particularly difficult to be a band with an international fan base,” explains bassist Nicolai Mogensen. “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic making concerts and touring virtually impossible, we have been forced to think carefully and carefully about how to reach our listeners in new ways. We wanted to do something spectacular that didn’t feel like a compromise – and with the help of talented people, we believe we’ve managed to create an online concert experience that’s out of this world.
“Live from the pool is the biggest production we’ve ever done as a band, and it was very exciting for us to work with such a complete set-up. We filmed the entire concert, with new and old, in an abandoned indoor swimming pool with five cameras and a drone, the decor lit by a beautiful light installation, tailor-made for this show by the collective of Danish audiovisual artists. Fear of heights.”
Live from the pool will be available on CD and Blu-ray, mint green vinyl and digitally.
