nagløed

Nagløed had het nieuwe geesteskind van Thom Yorke, Nils Frahm en Lander Gyselinck kunnen zijn, maar het bleken drie Gentse rakkers die dit muzikaal avontuur aanvatten in 2017: Dillian Fevry, Matthias Dewilde en Andreas Lagrou.

Een EP, een lange live sessie op Youtube en ruwweg 50 concerten later komt dit trio met hun eerste full album aanzetten. NowHere zag het licht op 8 september 2019.

Nagløed brengt jazz, pop en filmmuziek samen in een eigenzinnige mix van door elkaar zwevende laagjes. Met hun unieke bezetting, gitaar, drums, Rhodes en elektronica scheppen ze een intieme sfeer door rustige open composities af te wisselen met strakke grooves, vocals en soulvolle akkoorden.

Deze drie heren verkennen de vele mogelijkheden van hun set-up in een hechte symbiose en creëren zo een breekbaar universum met een immer smeulende puls eronder. Wat volgens hen de essentie van muziek is, wordt live al snel duidelijk: een klankwereld waar de luisteraar met plezier in verdwaalt.

lawaai : album release

Lawaai is a statement against the systematic classification of sound into noise and music. Using intuitive improvisation as a method, the trio pursues a music praxis free from expectations and intentions – free from historical and stylistic approaches. This results in a sound palette that reminds of anything but the familiar piano trio.

United by a shared interest for acoustic exploration and minimalistic aesthetics, the band played its first notes in 2017 in Copenhagen. Lawaai is the musical universe arising from the combined forces of Danish drummer Jeppe Høi Justesen, Belgian bassist Stan Callewaert and Polish piano player Kamil Piotrowicz. In 2018 they published their first release on an unlabeled, untitled cassette tape limited to 100 copies. The release tour of this album took them through Belgium, Germany and Poland and resulted in a new recording, now coming out as ‘Densities, Forces, Intensities’.

Densities, Forces, Intensities is the second album of the young Copenhagen-based band Lawaai. Recorded in one day at the Polish Radio Studios in Warsaw, the inspiration for the recording took shape during the anticipating 10-day long European release tour of their first album in January 2018. The title finds its origin in the words of French post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne, who expressed the need of always painting at close range to the landscape. Close to the point where one no longer sees forms or even matters, but only the forces, densities, intensities within the landscape. The same way Cézanne made invisible forces visible in his paintings, ‘Densities, Forces, Intensities’ is Lawaai’s attempt to render inaudible forces audible.

‘Densities, Forces, Intensities’ will be released on September 20th 2019 on the Polish label Howard Records. The album will be available digitally and on a limited edition 12” LP of 200 copies. The vinyl comes with digital download of the album and a handmade print.
