Going Up North is a Norwegian rock and roll band!
Going Up North from Bergen, Norway are out with another single from their upcoming second album which will be later in 2021. The track Waiting For The Sun,
Whereas their previous single(s) How Can I Sleep was a breezy 60-ish pop affair and I Can Hear You Calling more solid rock territory. Starting out with galloping drums over an indie/Pixies- beat and aggressive guitars, the song is quickly heading for the pay off, a big chorus with massive guitar chords and three part harmony backing lead singer Jan Vadseth’s words.
“All the tired heroes/ All the bums and zeroes/Waste no time in getting stoned”. The tone is set for a real piece of in-your-face rock. A fine walking bass line by bass line occasionally doubled by one of the electric guitar ties the song nicely together over the stomping drum beat. Some weird, but catchy guitar solos and subtle touches of organ and tambourine, straight out of the sixties, add spice to this little up tempo energy bomb.
Their second album will be out in August 2021.
