The Island Band Like Swimming Limited Vinyl LP

The Island Band is an orchestra led by musician, composer and producer Lars Myrvoll. With the album 'Like Swimming' he has constructed a highly unusual and emotionally charged stream of music together with a stunning bouquet of versatile Norwegian musicians, from bands such as Ultralyd, Splashgirl, MoHa, Kråkesølv, Sheriffs of Nothingness, Møster and Datarock. In other words, a long list of the Norwegian music community's most innovative artists. The album has a floating, dreamlike atmosphere, and moves between evocative, detailed instrumentals and imposingly produced pop tunes featuring vocals. Some of the combinations of instruments look totally absurd on paper, but sound entirely natural when they emanate from the loudspeakers. A radio edit of the song "Swimming", with a guest vocal by Maria Due, was released as a single this past summer, and serves as a good example. How often do you hear catchy, lushly orchestrated pop duets with Auto-Tune vocals, a sax solo and a theorbo?
