Broen I <3 Art Limited Vinyl LP

They may share a name and home country with one of Nordic TV's darkest detective dramas, but you won't find any dismembered bodies or nihilistic feelings on Broen's I <3 Art, released through Bella Union on 20th October. Bursting with experi-pop exuberance and driven by a spirit of warm commonality, the five-piece's debut album exults in the pleasures of intelligent music; its deep rhythms, dreamy melodies and dazzling sounds building bridges between bustles of jazzy percussion, psychedelic flourishes, funk grooves, mellifluous electronics and hip-hop beats. And if Norwegian-noir cliches and all other generic conventions are playfully bucked on its brightly exploratory way, such is Broen's mission. Recorded in Oslo's Studio Paradiso, engineered by Jaga Jazzist's Marcus Forsgren, and mixed by the band with Nick Terry, I <3 Art bursts with invigorating life. As Hans Hulbakmo (drums) puts it, "It's both soft and hard. Beautiful and ugly or corny. Adventurous and experimental but still groovy. It's honest and ironic. It has a lot of good energy. It was recorded live in the studio and it was a very joyful and positive experience. I think that shines through in the music, at least for us." And, we'd wager, it will for listeners too.
