Einar Stray Orchestra Politricks Limited Vinyl LP

Einar Stray Orchestra’s new album has been given the name "Politricks" and is lyrical a strong settlement with childhood heroes and beliefs that shatters when faced with the reality of the adult world. It is a personal story about finding oneself, about adolescent frustration in the middle of a blizzard of different beliefs. It is about losing a friend to death and a fare well letter to God, which was never sent but made into a song instead. "Politricks" is an album about being ashamed of Norwegian foreign policies – about being from a country that hands out peace prizes with one hand and simultaneously makes weapons of war and builds its extreme prosperity on oil with the other. Musically, Einar Stray Orchestra is inspired by artists such as Sufjan Stevens and Godspeed You! Black Emperor with the same orchestral approach to composing. The songs will be as long as they need to be and where both shouting and whispering colours the soundscape. "Politricks" is a dynamic and colourful album. Dark melancholy and an orchestral sound that meets an accessible pop sound with more shades than in its predecessor "Chiaroscuro". The signature grand piano gets a rest at times in favour of electric guitar and shoegaze influences. "Politricks" takes you from stripped a cappella to noisy rock crescendos. The album is produced by Hasse Rosbach (Team Me/Moddi) and mixed by Nick Terry (Libertines/Klaxons/Serena Maneesh.)
