Influenced by sounds varying from The Clash and Neil Young to Fela Kuti and Paco de Lucia, Amy Viking features lush guitar leads and surf-rock harmonies backed by a heavy rhythm section. Reminiscent of long summer days and Modelo beer, the sound is at once both familiar and new.
Although Amy Viking is still young, guitarist, Nicolai Wallace and vocalist/guitarist, Max Olson, have been playing together since they were 13 years old. The band formed in the spring of 2015 after the duo recruited bassist Sam Calhoon and drummer Brian Greggs. They released their self-recorded debut EP, “Opener”, in November 2015.
