NO - Hektor Grammofon / EMI Music
The 4th studio release from Sivert Høyem is titled Long Slow Distance. The album, scheduled for release on 16th September, is the most experimental body of work from Høyem to date.
This album is probably more representative of me as a person than anything I’ve ever done before.
Long Slow Distance marks a new chapter in the musical evolution of Sivert Høyem.
My solo material has previously been more inspired by folk music and Americana, whereas the Madrugada sound was bigger and more melodramatic. This time I wanted to stake out a new direction for myself, and this album is the most experimental work I’ve done to date, Høyem explains.
Sivert and his long time guitarist Cato Salsa – who have been working together closely from start to finish on the new album – have been inspired by several new directions, such as 90’s black metal, industrial noise, krautrock and French pop. The presence of synths on nearly all of the tracks is also something new.
