NEW SINGLE | King Viktor - Riptide (feat. The Haunted Youth)


Posted 03-05-2023

The Haunted Youth’s side project ‘King Viktor’ presents shimmering debut single “Riptide”

Take some Radiohead (In Rainbows!), Slowdive and DIIV, add the dreamy synths of The Haunted Youth and soothing voice of frontman Joachim Liebens et voilà: Riptide is nothing short of a dreampop beauty, fascinating indie shoegaze screaming ‘endless repeat’.

King Viktor is the brainchild of close friends Tom Stokx and Arno De Ros, born in 2018 as part of the healing process after the passing of Stokx’ father. Originally a live band of four, King Viktor soon evolved into its present line-up: a duo blending indie rock with shoegaze and dream pop, inspired by their love for bands like Slowdive, Radiohead and My Bloody Valentine.

Tom Stokx will be touring all over Europe (Rock Werchter, Pinkpop, Eurockéennes, Sziget, Iceland Airwaves, more tba) with The Haunted Youth this year. 'Riptide' will feature prominently in the live set.
