VOLK is Nashville indie-rock duo Eleot Reich (drums, vocals) and Christopher Lowe (guitar, vocals). Their new EP, Stand the Test (out Apr. 28), delves into bluesy retro-futuristic dance punk, synthwave, new wave and nostalgia-filled roller rink bangers. Their masterfully designed video for “I Fed Animals” is a cyberpunk spectacle of stylized street fights and music performance, shot partially on location in Tokyo. d

Since meeting in Berlin in 2013 at a brothel-turned-bar called Madame Claude’s, VOLK’s work ethic can’t be questioned. Spending more than half of the year on the road since their inception and recording regularly has paid off as they’ve shared bills with The Dead South, Charley Crockett, Electric Six, Supersuckers, Diarrhea Planet and more, and playing festivals like SXSW, Mile of Music and they’ll be playing this year’s Muddy Roots Music Fest.

In their travels, VOLK connected with producer John Pedigo (Old 97’s, Joshua Ray Walker, Leon Bridges). They recorded “Stand the Test” at his Modern Electric Sound Recorders studio in Dallas, and worked with him on the remixes and remasters that make up this EP. They’re currently in the process of completing their next full length album with Pedigo.
