Rambunctious hooks, gripping melodies and three songs of pure energy is what one will find on Set It On Fire by VIKINGO!. Each progression and track finds a new refrain to charge the listener’s ears like a whirlwind. This three song EP is louder than it needs to be, which is great because it’s setting this Friday on fire. New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth an exclusive track by track of Set It On Fire by VIKINGO!
SET IT ON FIRE
It’s the first song ever written for Vikingo!. We knew it had to be fast, loud, and stir shit up. The song is an attack on narcissism, materialism, shallowness, and general idiocy. It also offers the satirical solution of setting everything on fire.
ONE MAN TOWN
This was the first single we released. It’s a song about being stubborn. It depicts that inflated sense of self that makes you stick to your guns until you’ve shot everyone else down, and you end up alone in a one-man-town. Maybe it’s a reflection on how polarized the world is these days.
MAKE UP SEX
It’s a call to end nonsensical conflict. It’s a criticism on the hate that drives discrimination and the us-vs-them mentality. It’s also a middle finger to the people who capitalize on that hate to further their agendas, example: the current white house.
