Erlend Sellevold has created a beautiful monster that breathes fire from a chilled Valhalla in Bergen. On record it smoulders, on stage its aflame
Composers of blissful, widescreen pop.
Dirty Harry, a little dub and a doth to Morricone. Special indeed.
Dreamy downtempo pop music,but beneath lies something sleazy and sinister.Imagine the soundtrack for wife-swapping on the Shetland Isles and youre getting close.
