Artist of the Week - Heyerdahl

Heyerdahl is Kenneth Ishak, Tore Løchstøer Hauge, Magne Mostue, Mattis With from Oslo. Tired of their home town, they rented a lighthouse on the west coast of Norway and built a temporary studio overlooking the vast ocean. It happened to be that the winter storm of 2011 hit the coast with hurricane strength while the band stayed in their unfamiliar surroundings. Being so isolated, they started exploring the country’s mysterious past and stories about adventures and dangers of the ocean with all the human consequences: Love, companionship and loss. These influences seeped into the lyrics and music together with their very own ambition to develop an exciting new sound that doesn’t stand still. The result of this adventure is the powerful single Mirage and a remix, which will be released (12" & digital) via Red Eye Transit on August 10.

For those of you who can't wait, we give away a free download of the new release below. And to get some live fascination, we bring Heyerdahl to Berlin on August 22 where we present the Mirage Release Party at Monarch (Berlin).
