The trio Building Instrument exist in a sort of fantasy-filled no man’s land
between electronica, organic pop and something more mystical and fantastic.
They had already built a solid fan base before they released their début record
to rave reviews in 2014. On their second album, «Kem Som Kan Å
Leve” (2016), their mode of expression is deeper and more dreamlike, the
soundscape is broader and more substantial, and their music is still extremely
addictive and strangely catchy.

With a mix of jazz / folk / improvisation music, these three Norwegian
musicians have found their very own unique style. The compositions move
from melodic and delicate, to catchy rhythmic patterns, to melancholic and
dreamy moods and soundscapes. Building Instrument has within their
10 years taken plenty of time to distil its essence into a distinctive mode of
expression.

Their third album will be released on Hubro this autumn (November 9th, 2018)
