The End is near - after two albums on the now defunct UK label Rare Noise, the powerful project of Sofia Jernberg (vocals), Kjetil Møster (clarinet and tenor saxophone), Mats Gustafsson (flutes, baritone saxophone and electronics), Anders Hana (baritone and bass guitar) and Børge Fjordheim (drums) release their third album on Trost. They combine Avantrock, Jazz and a haunting beautiful voice to a seethe mix of emotions, noise, music - a sonic landscape, dynamic and captivating. This album is a true testament to the power of experimental music that continues to push boundaries and explore new sonic territories. Sofia Jernberg's voice is a central element - her timbre and diverse vocal techniques set new accents and give the tracks an extraordinary emotional depth.
