Format Info

LP - black vinyl

Black Water is a collection of songs originating in an ill-omened overnight hike through the remote Norwegian island Varalds√ły in 2017.

The tracks pick out scenes from this trip. Marching off alone along the coastal path in the direction of an upland ridge called Hesten (The Horse). Trudging east through a storm several hours later into pathless forest towards the ominously named Svartavatnet (Black Water). Stumbling down the mountain road at midnight, the woods humming with bioluminescence.
