Bio

EVOLUTION.AND.VIK is a steaming fresh band, based in Bergen in Norway. The bands Architect is none other than Nils Petter Molvaer. Norways most internationally acclaimed trumpetist. When Molvær heard Viktoira play her songs at a garden party, the summer of 2012, he was immediately convinced that Hans Petter Gundersen and Viktoira Winge had to meet and work together. Thus EVOLUTION.AND.VIK was a reality October 2012.

The sound is electronic acoustic, with tight groves, fuzzing basslines, cheeky guitars, and various analog toys. If possible, a kind of trip hop folk brit-pop genre. When it comes to music references, LCD soundsystem, Coco Rosie, EGS, EMF, Portishead are amongst bands that EVOLUTION.AND.VIK can identifie with. Raw and vulnerable. Naughty and heartfelt.

The band's producer Hans Petter Gundersen, has produced over 60 albums. One of his recent releases was the album "Spiritual Non beliver" by The Last Hurrah!! with the record company Rune Gramofon. The album was critically acclaimed on the international music market, and the album received great critics in the influential British music magazines Mojo and The Wire.

She started her exproration of sound, lyrics and music whilst based UK for several years. Playing in different bands, gigging in London, and at several British festivals.
