THE NEW WINE
Consisting of four young men aged 19 to 21, all residing in the musical capitol of Norway, Bergen, The New Wine are making waves at home and abroad with their delicious and accessible brand of pop songs. Not long after their live debut, the word about The New Wine spread throughout Bergen.
Natural references such as Michael Jackson, LCD Soundsystem, The Whitest Boy Alive and Koji Kondo (acclaimed Nintendo-composer) can all be cited as influences in this accessible but fragrantly open group, shamelessly combining pop, funk and rock. The underlying passion in The New Wine’s music, however, is strong – a want to make danceable, feel-good music for people to enjoy themselves too.
The New Wine have since played the Öya Festival in Oslo, toured Norway once, toured London (playing 10 gigs in 10 days including the Camden Lock Tavern and 93 Feet East), Start The Bus in Bristol, Popkomm, Berlin, and Eurosonic Festival in Groningen, The Netherlands. They have performed countless live sets with The Whitest Boy Alive, and in April, 2009, they set out to support The Whitest Boy Alive on their European tour (16 gigs in Germany, France, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, England and Denmark).
Like all bottles of wine, the best are left to mature and develop over time. The same is to be said with the New Wine, as they grow and mature, both personally and as a band. Time will indeed show the full potential and skill of this most promising of acts.
