Visti & Meyland ‘Sharing The Light’ on Music For Dreams 21st April 2017

Music For Dreams is releasing the new album from Visti & Meyland on Friday 21st April 2017.
The label has received applause for a string of vibrant releases from artists such as Jan Schulte, Ruf Dug, Oscar Bandersen, Apiento, and label head honcho Kenneth Bager.
Music For Dreams have stated that Visti & Meyland’s quirky, spanner-in-the-works take on things really attracted them to the Danish paring, whose broad musical heads and certain sense of humour in their music dovetails with the label’s own ideals.
Visti & Meyland teamed up through friends in 2003 and immediately discovered they shared a mutual interest in creating music. Their musical union has since spawned several 12” releases on labels such as Eskimo, Music for Dreams and Warner Music.
Their self-titled debut album is a result of the last 7-years of their journey together. One of its lead tracks ‘Yes Maam (All Nite)’, has already made waves. It samples some archive African American recordings and spins them into a minimalist electrodisco groove. Recent single ‘Stars’ also takes a starring role with its epic extended ‘prog-disco’ build up and rousing Russian-cold-war-navy-style chorus. The future single ‘Leave Your Worries’ has a great dose of positivity with dancefloor groove and zany lyrical musings. The floor friendly ’Diggy Dang’ also adds to the up-tempo groove quotient of the LP. Of course there is the obligatory cover version on the album; Grace Jones’ ‘Nightclubbing’ is the subject here; a fine quirky disco re-take. Both Visti & Meyland being Geminis admit the vibe in the studio can become fairly tense and sometimes result in hour-long discussions on music, music history, musical taste and life in general. This feeds down to the variety of styles encapsualted in their production sound. Tracks such as ‘Something In The Way’, ‘Slowly’ and ‘I’m Scared’ explore the more introspective, down-tempo and thoughtful side of the pairing, while epics such as ‘The Chair’ detail the breadth of influences and the vast musical silos the pair can draw from.
