Press release – Vilnes EP

Indie pop from Norway

It has been a great year for Vilnes! He was recently awarded Best Male Artist by Radio Wigwam(UK). In Norway the single Story Unsaid was listed for 12 weeks by the national Broadcaster NRK P1. Spotify’s editorial team did also like the music of the Norwegian indie pop singer and songwriter. Now his first 5 track EP is ready. Hope you like it.

Vilnes EP

The new tracks are the opening track Helping Dude and the beautiful Going Home closes this first multi track release from Vilnes. 

With this release Vilnes showcases both his amazing voice and his skills in songwriting.  There is no formula to the song book of Vilnes. Variation is the key, but still there is a signature. His ability to make rich songs with irresistibly catchy lines and hooks is amazing, and it is all present on this EP.

Musical performances by Eivind Vilnes, Felix Rudi, Einaras Baltrimas, Ella Helén Bukkøy, Stian Brungot og Sigmund Weyergang Omvik. 

The EP was produced by Jon-Anders Orlien.
