Dance the Night Away with VNV Nation

December 7th, 2011

The two-man electronic band VNV Nation—short for Victory Not Vengeance—is made up of Ronan Harris (production, songwriting and vocals) and Mark Jackson (electronic drums, percussion and keys). The duo was originally from Dublin but is now based out of Hamburg. Despite the move, the synthpop sound has remained the same since releasing Advance and Follow in 1995. The two have put out seven LPs since, including this year’s Automatic. And when they play live, as they do on Friday at Webster Hall, VNV Nation (above, doing “Illusion”) is rounded out with other musicians.
