Shining have just released two brand new live videos for the tracks “The One Inside” and their single “I Won’t Forget”. Filmed this summer at Norway’s biggest festival, The Øya Festival, the videos showcase the band’s unique blend of tight playing and loose and playful improvisation:
Here’s a fun little video Shining did with NRK P3 at the Norwegian National TV, filmed in one take with only three mics (the band usually uses 25), with no editing and no mixing.
The location is the demolition site where Shining’s studio and rehearsal rooms have been for the last 7 years. As you see, it’s all about to be torn down and/or converted into apartments, just like what happens all over Oslo city now, since investors earn much more money on building apartments than preserving cool buildings with arts and music
Norwegian industrial jazz-metalists SHINING are excited to announce dates for a headlining North American tour this fall, including the group’s first-ever performances in Canada.
