Bror Forsgren Narcissus Limited Vinyl LP

When Bror Forsgren (The Lionheart Brothers, Jaga Jazzist, Silence The Foe) is making his solo debut at the age of 34, he doesn't go easy on anything. As the title on the great art deco-inspirered cover indicates at first sight, «Narcissus» is a grandiose and uncompromising piece of pop music. The album's theme is centred around the big questions. Lost love, innocence and faith in God are all important elements in the universe Bror Forsgren has created for «Narcissus». The arrangements, which none other than TrondheimSolistene have orchestrated, are grandiose and intricate. Despite its «wall of sound»-approach and several prominent musical guests (Lars Horntveth, Mathias Eick, Marte Eberson and others), the album still comes across as an intensely personal affair. Bror Forsgren himself describes the album like this: - I've always dreamed of making an album with grand orchestration, whilst managing to keep the music timeless. I'm a big fan of Scott Walker and loves his ability to intertwine velvety pop music and modern composition. My vision for this album has been to create a work where my natural pop habitat melts together with the classical and the modern. Already on the opening track, «Waiting For That Holy Music», it's clear that this isn't just any album. Its musical landscape evokes the previously mentioned Scott Walker and other greats like The Beach Boys, Brian Eno and Ennio Morricone. But «Narcissus» is by no means an exercise in the name of pastiche art. The way Bror Forsgren takes elements from these greats and builds his own sonic cathedral, shows that he's an impressively confident artist with a clear vision.
