I don’t know what it is about some acoustic guitars and harmonised voices that makes me melt. Especially when Erlend Oye and Eirik Glambek Boe are the 2 guys behind it all. I suppose it’s just the plain, simple and earnest melodies. Bright, clean and austere like what you’d expect their native Norway to be. Just the first few seconds of their latest record soothed away everything and for a brief period, nothing else seemed to matter.
