bleeding swans and crying fingers

There is a secret place we all call “Grandma’s House”; hidden among fields and forests in Eastern Norway, it’s a small white settlement that has become a base for some mysterious musical performances to the local youth. The darker, the better.. When I was first given the Twin Pines Mall demo, years ago, I remember just coming back from Hedmark with the lead singer Uno. We walked under a bizarre summer rain, I was carrying a plastic bag with some Death Is Not Glamorous and Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort records I’d just picked up at the record store. I was wearing a hoodie, Andreas had dinner with us, we made chocolate cake and I distinctly remember holding a yellow flyer for a Dominic show and talking about one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Norwegian scene: Sigh & Explode. So one thing led to another and eventually, Andreas took out that demo and handed it to me. That’s how great things always start. Fast forward to three years later, and what we have in a small, somewhat non-serious project that started to turn into serious business. Two guys making loud music in a living room turns into a full-sized band, the raw screaming develops some riffs and beautiful harmonies, apparatet work their magic, and what we have is a very great – I mean VERY GREAT – video, part staged, part live musical performance, with an aftertaste of Norwegian gloom.
