Vallkyrie – taking their name from the female warriors of Norse mythology – consist of Rebel Reid and Omer Gilroy as the powerhouse behind the industrial storm that is this new age girl power band. Add Brandon Haru as their Viking drummer and you have a Norse force to be reckoned with.
Today Vallkyrie are very pleased to announce the release of their brand new single LOST SOUL.
Born out of an all-night jam session with the three Valkyries’, Lost Soul began with Rebel playing chords that transported the room to the 1970’s. Brandon added some military style beats and Omer sprinkled soulful chants of “I lost my soul in this rock and roll”, all laid down on a distinctly 2000’s smartphone voice memo recording.
Incidentally, the demo was forgotten about for a week before the trio stumbled across the recording and decided in amongst the guitars at the Manukau Rock Shop that Lost Soul was going to be a single, and the next step towards releasing their debut album.
Chris Chetland at Kog worked his voodoo magic on the demo to transform the song into the soulful rock infused track you can stream and purchase today.
The groundbreaking video for Lost Soul – directed by Shae Sterling – is one of only three other music videos in existence worldwide, to be filmed in infrared.
With filming taking place over two months in stunning New Zealand locations; the video tells another story of the song, with the trio joining forces with Catherine McKay from the Auckland Academy of Dance whose students helped bring the song to visually stunning life.
