Adam Janzi vertelt:
“It is a pleasure to share ‘Head Mounted Sideways’ with you taken from our upcoming ‘Live From The Pool’ release! We recorded this last year in an abandoned military camp in Denmark. Despite the cold and the humidity, we had a great time being there all day and all night into the early morning.
Between loading in all the gear, setting it up, recording and packing down, we had the time to visit the abandoned area and take it all in. The atmosphere of the place, the abandoned halls and the memories that might still dwell there influenced our show and gave us a sense of being part of another world. Hopefully, we can bring you into that world and give you a glimpse of what we experienced there!”

In september 2021 speelde VOLA een intieme show in een schitterende live setting. ‘Live From The Pool’ vond plaats in het zwembad van de verlaten militaire basis Auderød in Noord-Seeland vlakbij Kopenhagen, Denemarken. Dit verlaten gebouw is ontworpen door de wereldberoemde architect Henning Larsen en is onderdeel geworden van het natuurpark Auderød.

De band creëerde een unieke ervaring door samen te werken met het audiovisuele kunstenaarscollectief Vertigo.

Over de show vertelt Nicolai Mogensen:
“The idea for ‘Live From The Pool’ was conceived at a time where it was particularly hard to be a band with an international fanbase. Due to the Covid-19-pandemic making live shows and touring practically impossible, we were forced to think carefully and creatively about how to reach our listeners in new ways. We wanted to do something spectacular that didn’t seem like a compromise – and with loads of help from talented people, we think we succeeded in creating an online concert experience out of the ordinary.”

Hij vervolgt, “‘Live From The Pool’ is the biggest production we have ever made as a band, and it was very exciting for us to work with such an extensive set-up. We filmed the entire concert, featuring both new and old material, at an abandoned indoor swimming pool with five cameras and a drone, the scenery lit up by a beautiful light installation, custom-made for this show by the Danish audio-visual artist collective Vertigo.”

De show bevat uitvoeringen van hun catalogus, waaronder “Alien Shivers,” “Stray The Skies,” “Whaler,” “Ghosts”, evenals nummers van hun nieuwste release “Witness”. Fans van buiten Denemarken kunnen nummers als “Straight Lines,” “These Black Claws,” Head Mounted Sideways”, en meer voor het eerst live horen.
