SOM EN FALDSKÆRM

UDGIVELSESDATO MARCH 8th 2019

KOMPOSITIONER AF JEPPE LAVSEN, ANDERS JUEL BOMHOLT, JONATHAN FJORD BREDHOLT

JEPPE LAVSEN (GUITAR), JONATHAN FJORD BREDHOLT (PIANO & HARMONIUM), ANDERS JUEL BOMHOLT (BAS)

"At between three and five minutes’ duration, Hvalfugl’s creations are carefully-crafted gems. Ode Til Birk and Lystrup imply the north-eastern ‘going home’ of Mark Knopfler; simple piano tunes in Utopi and Mens VI Sover (While We Sleep) emphasise the beauty of the trio’s shared instrumentation; melancholic Mellem Bække Og Bakker (Between Brooks and Hills) grows in strength and positivity; and the title track closes with an impression of medieval or celtic influence as it gambols to ornamented piano/guitar and Bomholt’s ever-present double bass swell."

En Dag I Oktober tog Hvalfugl en dag ud af kalenderen for at indspille en video til 4 numre de havde skrevet forinden. Dette blev til en videosession med et musiknummer indspillet på forskellige tidpunkter den samme dag. Tidlig morgen optag de den salige melodi, Stilhed Før Stormen. Ved middagstid den friske og finsk-inspirerede Fremmed Land, og om aftenen spillede de den mere melankolske, Tanken Om Irland. EP'en ligger kun digitalt og kan ikke købes på CD eller Vinyl.

"The music of Hvalfugl is so damn beautiful. The trio’s debut album By stakes out territory where Scandinavian folk and Nordic Jazz share a border, which means you’re gonna get some lovely melodic imagery set in an environment where a thick, moody ambiance has all kinds of potency. The melody of “Stormsvale” goes waltzing, light on its feet even during those passages when the song dips into contemplation, whereas on “Novemberhymne,” the melody alternates between brief melodic fragments and extended exhalations. The spry “Mäsk” delivers a hook as sharp as any pop song, but its complex motion exposes facets of the melody that transcend superficiality. There’s a couple interludes to help set the scene, but the album is comprised entirely by short pieces that get to the point. There’s no time for enchantment like the present, each piece states unequivocally. Beauty starts with the first note. That’s also how each song ends."
