Spurv

Spurv is a five piece post-rock band from Oslo, Norway. Starting out in 2011 with the demo “Med enormt håp,” the band has since then performed several concerts in Oslo and around. 2012 saw the release of their debut EP “Blader som faller til jorden og blir til nye trær” which was well received and granted, among others, a 96/100 rating at postrockstar.com, who wrote:

“Blader som faller til jorden og blir til nye trær’ is a strong contender for my favorite EP of the year. It’s length is just right for an EP chalked full of melodramatic music at the highest possible quality. The level of craftsmanship in Spurv‘s music is simply off the charts and the way the band is able to draw the listener in with their deep thought provoking and emotional music is something that we rarely see from young bands, let alone on debut releases. I have big expectations for these Norway Post-rockers in the future. This is a must listen to EP of 2012.”

Doognad Records will release this EP on the vinylformat in 2013.

Spurv performs melodic, instrumental post-rock influenced by such acts as Mono, Red Sparowes and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, but with a little thrust to the fervour of norwegian black metal. The music is profound and intense, both joyeous and melancholic. With its mixture of serenity and bleakness, the music has proven itself very suitable for both live shows and on record. After some minor changes the line up is the following:

Gustav Jørgen Pedersen: Guitar
Herman Otterlei: Guitar
Niklas Bystrøm Larsen: Guitar
Hans-Jakob Jeremiassen: Bass
Simon Ljung: Drums
