Mokri are one of the the most interesting new acts on the Norwegian alternative rock scene. The band consists of Andrea Barsnes Undset (drums), Eirik Ørevik Aadland (bass, trumpet) and Niklas Bystrøm Larssen (guitar, synthesizer). They’re going to release their debut album Total Love on June 1st via Sheep Chase Records.
Today we have the pleasure to bring you the premiere of Mokri’s new single, “Labyrinths” (listen below), a 6 minute-long song that will take you on their contagious psychedelic & post rock sonic trip.
Mokri’s debut album Total Love was produced by the band and Ådne Meisfjord of 120 Days, Serena Maneesh, Tropical Contact High and mastered by Marcus Schmickler
Here’s what the band had to say about “Labyrinths”: “We wanted to make a song that felt like a massive body, a maze of rhythmical patterns and textures of sound. The sound palette is made up by the intense recordings we did in Malabar Studio in Oslo, with Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh), a Korg MS20, a noisy Sequential Circuits Drumtracks machine that we recorded with Ådne Meisfjord (Tropical Contact High) in Berlin, and recordings from Bergen Cathedral. We recorded guitar overdubs and pipe organ in the cathedral for five nights, and all of the reverb on the guitars is natural resonance from the room. The pipe organ is played by Fridtjof Wesseltoft.”
Total Love is out June 1st via Sheep Chase Records.
