SPURV – new single and video
SPURV: Norwegian Instrumental Post-rock/Metal Sextet Unveils “Å vente er å endre” Video; “Brefjaere” Full-Length To See Release September 22 Via Pelagic Records
“The premiere from the Oslo-based Spurv is no exception. “Å vente er å endre” meshes haunting minimalist guitars and eerie vocals alongside absolutely crushing walls of guitars and atonal string dissonance for a concise devastating and memorable track that leaves me wanting much more.”
Everything Is Noise
The band comments:
“Although very short, “Å vente er å endre” is in a sense a concentrate of the whole album: dramatic noise, emotional melodies and – what is new for this album – a vocal driven narrative about time, history, and the nature of existence. The track embodies one of the four characters of “Brefjære”, the butterfly, or more specifically biston betularia, gracefully performed by our friend Tåran Reindal of Leonov. The video by Kristoffer Klunk Nyborg and Henrik Berge is the perfect visual accompagnement to the song, setting the mood for the rest of the album while it develops the aesthetic world of Spurv.”
With expansive studio albums and captivating live shows, it’s safe to say that Spurv have left an indelible impression on the international post-rock scene over the past decade. This Norwegian sextet has released 3 stellar al- bums thus far, but their new record Brefjære opens up a whole new dimension in terms of composition, musicianship, scope and pro- duction. Brefjære combines the orchestral grandeur of MONO with the wistful textures of This Will Destroy You and the Scandinavian mysticism of Sigur Rós. An oratorio for a world in despair with which Spurv redefne the boundaries of symphonic rock and post-rock, fnding beauty and solace in the intersection of time, nature, history, and humanity.
