Growing out of Hans Olav Settems’ solo project, the 9-piece indie/folk-group have been working on-and-off on their debut album since 2013. “‘Old friends’ is a mellow and nostalgic track about losing someone close,” said Benedikt. “The folky orchestral feel made from banjos, trombones, strings and electronic chaos wants to illustrate the pain while still being hopeful.”
It does that beautifully – slowly – purposefully – cinematically. Like the old 60’s French film of your mind, the love and reluctance, vibes through the flowing apparel of ‘Old Friends’. It’s sooting and embracing remarks, embrace with grace and amplitude.
As the stringed instruments stroke and pick with mindful empathy, the Norway based band continues with their inquisitive, naughty, and oh so decadent “purveyance” of their musical wares.
