Vinyl LP pressing.
Arabrot are set to return on 7th September with their most astounding piece of True Norwegian Art Rock to date, Who Do You Love on new home Pelagic Records.
The Norwegian grammy award winning band carry all the hallmarks of a sonic spectrum that has always been a wide and wild field of purposeful mismatches, a world of friction between the noisy, the disharmony and the tension, with rivalling moments of harmonic relief. But there is more than noise rock to Arabrot's formula,
"I'm interested in feelings, either the very silent or the extremely noisy," band leader Kjetil Nernes comments. "I don't care about what's in between, the middle of the road isn't my thing. The bible fits really well with that. I'm using it
thematically all of the time."
It comes as no surprise that the singer and guitar player has established himself in a former church in the woods of Dalarna in rural Sweden, where he lives with his wife, piano player and singer Karin Park, and where his band now rehearses and records, surrounded by pianos, organs and hundreds of old bibles that the church left behind when the congregation stopped.
The clerical environment has proven to be an excellent creative tapestry for a band whose lyrical focus orbits around sex, death and defiance.
The band has collaborated with producers like Billy Anderson and Steve Albini, and musicians like Ted Parsons (Killing Joke/Swans), Sunn O))))'s Stephen O'Malley, and Kvelertak's Erlend Hjelvik. They have composed music for silent movies like "Die Niebelungen" and "Doctor Caligari", and have teamed up with The Quietus founder John
Doran on his spoken word tour. Their previous full-length album "The Gospel", was also named "Album of the Year" by The Quietus.
