Guitarist Lars Olav Mangelrød and bassist and vocalist Helge Corneliussen form viseMenn, an atmosphere dream rock duo out of Norway. They count U2, Mogwai and Sigur Ros among their influences and intend to write songs that enlighten listeners. Their intricate guitar lines and soulful melodies create an ambient and distant sonic experience. Their unique origins and musical style are either going to thoroughly impress or thoroughly disappoint; a classic example of a “love ‘em or hate ‘em” band. Catch them Indie Week to see if your spiritual horizons are broadened.
