Discovery: Våke

Våke are a Norwegian folk band, producing beautiful soundscapes that touch the soul.

By Jane Howkins

Farer is their latest song to be released, featuring a haunting guitar melody that runs throughout the piece. The soft vocals that Rannveig provides are also stunningly beautiful, fitting the piece perfectly. As well as the folk elements, the band are also influenced by country music and 70s rock, which can also be heard within the song, although the folk influences are more prevalent. We really enjoyed listening to Våke’s music and we can’t wait to hear what they come up with next time around!
