With their sophomore album Kama Muta released on the 11th of November, Norway’s Stillehavet has given us a wonderful taster in the form opening track, Cosmos. Watch the video for the song below.
Here, Marit Elisabeth Svendsbøe Stedje and Gaute Stedje utilise a similar sound palette to another, well-known Norwegian duo, Röyksopp. Drenched in an unearthly and intoxicating atmosphere, the rhythms and shades of Cosmos conjure up a sense of dislocation, creating a melancholic mood without sacrificing the power of the entrancing melody. Cosmos is a beautiful piece of music.
You will soon be able to pre-order Kama Muta in vinyl and digital forms via the duo’s Bandcamp page. You can also stream Cosmos on Spotify. For other listening options, be sure to check Stillehavet out over on Facebook or Instagram, and maybe show them some social media love to keep up with news about the album.
