The Vineyards strongly recommend that you visit Synne Moen Tøften´s website. She was the designer that made the fantastic cover art for our latest album. Get a glimpse at what inspired her in the process and how the artwork was made.
And last but not least; take a look at the extremely limited edition merchandise that will be available only on eBay! We´ll let you know when the auctions start!
Ok, here it is – Northern Winters arranged for acoustic guitar and macintosh! I bet you’ve never seen anything like it :
Now, we do need to explain this performance. As you may know, The Vineyards is a band fully employed in the business sector and a lot of our texts reflects the hard and dull life of office work. Like we say in Texas Ranger:
«gotta make a living, that’s all I know, it’s time to work, let’s go, let’s go!»
or in The Alibi:
«but as the clock is ticking and the day runs out, I cross my arms, I’m dreaming of what life is about» … «I should be seated at the fireside, with a little velvet robe untied, but every time I try to unwind, I’ll be standing at the assembely line»
Now, that is what we call powerful lyrics! The hard office work require a lot of skills in how to lure the co-workers (and bosses) to believe that you’re actually working when you’re sitting at the desk. What they don’t know is that we are actually making music in our office hours while playing keyboard on our macs. This version of Northern Winters is a way for us to come clean to our co-workers and say that there is indeed a life outside the cubicle! Enjoy!
Be shure to tune in to OsloTV tonight as Kjartan and Hans Martin from The Vineyards will visit and play a very special version of Northern Winters from the new album.
This will be a one time only preformance of this edit of Northern Winters so do not miss it. We do not want to say to much about the gig, but the way it will be played will reflect our daily life as office workers and white collar bastards.
Update: You can se us at approx 17:50 and 18:50 on Oslo TV. The recording will also be available on the web tomorrow!
Every once in a while The Vineyards are lucky, and when we had our show at Café Moody in Haugesund last weekend we were lucky! The fine photographer Edgar G. Bachel showed up and took some amazing photos.
Check them out:
Thanks to all the people who came to see our shows in Bergen and Haugsund! It was a blast!
Here is some uninteresting pictures we took:
And here you’ll find some pictures from Haugesunds Avis who was there taking pictures of people drinking their way through the easter holiday.
The Vineyards inntar frukosten på Cafe Moody i Haugesund, medan vi oppsummerer konserten i går som ein suksess. Vegen går vidare til Bergen no, og vi ser fram til nok ein påskekonsert på vestlandet. Topp stemning!
Allright! Da er vi på plass i Haugesund og om kun kort tid begynner vi å rigge på café Moody for kveldens spass! Herligheten i kveld koster 80 kroner i døra. Kom og rist av deg påskefettet!
Styningene har det med å snakke med hverandre, og dermed blir The Vineyards invitert til å snakke på NRK Sogn og Fjordandes program Lutt. Hør intervjuet med Kjartan på nettsidene til NRK!
