Djerv Vocalist Performs For League Of Legends

Djerv singer Agnete Kjølsrud performed the vocals on the track “Get Jinxed” released by Riot Games. The track and video is released in support of the introduction of a new character, “Jinx” into their flagship game League Of Legends. Check it out below.

Agnete from Djerv was approached by Riot Games composer Christian Linke to record vocals for the track. Christian comments:

“I had known Agnete since I had listened to her old band Animal Alpha around 2006 or so, there was a song on the SXSW festival sampler. When I sat down and thought of who to reach out to for the vocals on the Jinx track, Agnete's voice came instantly to my mind. I wasn't sure if I could even get in touch with her, but everything luckily worked out, and she was interested. Jinx is in a way very unpredictable and somewhat bipolar. She can go from laughing hysterically to screaming aggressively within seconds. I think Agnete's voice has those features, she is incredibly versatile. So much control over her voice, we could literally do anything. From totally childlike characteristics to raw, uncontrolled power”

Agnete also comments: "Working on this was incredibly fun and inspiring. Naturally it was a challenge as where so far apart, but when we got into the groove on skype we were able to make it work pretty fast. We tried recording in Oslo, but I realized I had to get in the room with Christian and work with him in the studio. Going all the way to LA was not the ideal setup, but when I got there it was such a fun a fulfilling experience. The whole Riot Games crew is such great creative people, it was an honor working with them.” More...
