Product Description

Product Description

Splashgirl are one of the most exciting young instrumental bands to come out of Norway in the past few years. Essentially a piano trio with added electronics, but with a highly personal sound. With 'Pressure', their third album and certainly their strongest to date, the band is taking yet another giant step forward.

The band's foundation is acoustic: pianist Andreas Stensland Løwe (Thelma & Clyde, Lama, Jæ), bassist Jo Berger Myhre (Ingrid Olava, Solveig Slettahjell) and drummer Andreas Lønmo Knudsrød (Sacred Harp, Lama). But the members of the trio also add some simple analogue electronics. The musical dynamics of Splashgirl have a broad scope, ranging from gloomy prophecies of doom that flow onwards like hot tar to ethereal, minimalist-inspired compositions. The opening track on their new album would have been perfect as film music for a Western filmed in the Antarctic. In any case, what is most striking about Splashgirl is the enormous sense of concentration and the impressive focus on subtle details that are an integral part of their music. 'Pressure' was recorded by Alex Kloster-Jensen at Malabar Studio in Oslo, and was mixed by Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Jesse Sykes) at Aleph Studios, Seattle.

Review

(4 stars) Beautiful and unique...a masterclass in spatial awareness, dynamics and emotion. -- Uncut, (Ben Beaumont-Thomas), September 2011
