"Take You There"

I can forsee huge opportunities in the near future for the members of the band, especially if they continue producing this level of high quality music. - Gas House Radio

"Take You There"

It's big, it's bold, it's brave, and it sounds damn good. - Band Blurb


Building on the futuristic sounds of those 80’s synth pioneers, 90’s Industrial noise merchants and and contemporary electro-explorers, Version 5 is a slick blend of the cold, clinical, noir-ish musical drama of those originators and a modern dark dance vibe. It grafts an electro-gothic undercurrent on to an almost industrial pop sensibility (is that even a thing? I guess it is now!) and the result is the perfect soundtrack to be emanating from our car stereo as we drive into that final sunrise of the dystopian future. - A + R Factory

Version 5 is the brainchild of Minneapolis brothers Andy & Spencer Olson.  In 2018 they picked up  drummer AJ Rowe, who adds extra flair and  energy to the group. For Version 5, nothing compares to the floor shaking beats of electronic music and the raw energy of rock music. 

Sonically, Version 5 (or [v5]) combine elements from the EDM/Electro-Punk world and the Rock/Industrial world to create something truly their own. This creates an infectious combination that is perfect for fans of Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy, and Linkin Park. Their unique sound quickly caught the attention of multi-platinum A&R/producer Jeff Blue (Macy Gray, Linkin Park), and in 2015 they released their debut EP, co-produced by Blue.

Their live performances are inspired by the unique lineups of artists like NERO and Twenty One Pilots.

Stay tuned, & join the addiction.
