Jordsjø to release new studio album “Nattfiolen” on May 24th 2019

Jordsjø Nattfiolen cover
Norwegian Prog Rockers Jordsjø are back with “Nattfiolen”, an album filled with acoustic guitars, flutes, tape echo, analogue synths and Hammond organ. Warm and dreamy, “Nattfiolen” reflects the band’s longing for a simpler life close to nature, and an imaginary past where life is centered around music.

And today Karisma Records have released a single from the album that perfectly illustrates the folk-inspired Symphonic Prog, one could almost say Forest Prog, that typifies  Jordsjø’s musical output. The single, for the track “Stifinner” can be streamed or downloaded here.

Led by multi-instrumentalist Håkon Oftung (ex-Tusmørke), Jordsjø was formed in Oslo in 2014, and is a band that draws its inspiration from old horror movies, German 70s Synth music, Swedish Prog, fantasy novels and Norwegian nature. So much so, in fact, that when, just over a year ago, JORDSJØ first spoke about “Nattfiolen”, they referred to it as “a kind of Intermezzo that will explore more deeply the mysticism that surrounds the forest”.

“Nattfiolen” is the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed debut “Jord”. Recorded and mixed in Jordsjø’s  own studio, “Nattfiolen” is mastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel, etc.) at the Dude Ranch Studio.

With cover art by Sindre Foss Skancke and band photos by Anne-Marie Forker, track listing for “Nattfiolen” is as follows.

01. Ouverture
