New signing announced: CURVS!March 23rd, 2017
We are proud to announce the addition of ‘Curvs’ to the Fysisk Format family! Look out for new single ‘Delusive Stars’ that will manifest on april 7th.
Curvs consists of childhood friends, Hjalmar Myksvoll-Singh and Øystein Redalen, this single is their first on Fysisk Format and a follow-up to the self-released album Hauntropics. On stage they are joined by brothers in arms Lasse Saurbrey( Lazy K) on bass/synth and Joachim Amundsen Trana( Casiokids, Hypertext) on drums.
Conceived in the Indian mountains, born in Bergen ( Norway), Hjalmar met his partner in crime and lifelong friend and companion Øystein in an Oslo suburb at the age of five. With skateboards under their feet, weird instruments in their hands and even weirder music in their ears, the seeds of the dynamic duo were sown, that would bloom years later when the two immersed themselves in a studio bunker built in an old potato cellar in the rural province of Telemark.
There, the Curvs sound, inspired by short and long stays in the tropics and the desire to bastardize musical genres, was born out of home made compressors, rare pre amps and echo valves coupled with old drum machines, odd strings and analog synths from Japan.
The album is composed, performed and produced by Curvs and partly mixed by both Curvs and Nick Terry ( The Libertines, Klaxons, Serena Maneesh, Kvelertak). Their bassist Lasse Saurbrey joined in for the final mix of the song Atlantic Cologne.
