A clip from the Insolence track
This week's clip has been taken from the longest track of the Repose album, clocking in at over 26 minutes in length. As is the case with all the tracks on this album, this one also contains sections with fairly large arrangements and orchestral passages. It's without doubt the largest mix of the album - not only because of it's length - but also due to its total number of 74 mono and stereo tracks.

As the track itself has a decent length, we decided to make this week's clip a bit long as well. You can listen to it by clicking right here.
Repose pre-orders starting August 25!


Fresh from the factory

Starting August 25 you'll all be able to pre-order the Repose album from our record label's website. Make sure to plan a visit to secretquarters.com that day! The store will open at midnight (Norwegian time, of course).











And this week's new clip is...
... a section from the track called "Fatigue". This track appears as the second track on disc one of (the CD version of) the Repose album. The clip features, among other things, a violin lead nicely executed by Mira Ursic, the great vocals of Cecilie Langlie and the lyrics of the late Einar Fredriksen.

You can find this week's clip right here!

The Repose album is headed for a worldwide release on Secret Quarters on September 1, 2011.
Another week, another new clip
We're continuing to count down to the September 1 release of the "Repose" album with uploading some more stuff to the web. This week, we're making available a clip from the third track of the CD version - a track that has been named "Dissolve". We haven't uploaded any clips from this track previously, so this should be entirely new, even for those of you that have been following us since way back in the promo days.

The clip can be checked out right here.
New clip available!
With our "Repose" album approaching its September 1 release date, we try to shorten the wait with a new taste of what this album sounds like.

Many changes have been made to this album since we made the promotional version available last year. New strings were recorded under the supervision of Tom Simonsen and excellently performed by Rosamund Brown and Mira Ursic. The drums have been completely re-recorded, and new edits have been made in addition to the album getting a complete remix and remaster.

Today's clip has been taken from the first track of the second disc of the CD version of "Repose", a track entitled "Constriction". (Are we sort of confirming the existence of more than one version...?) You can check it out right here!
The "Repose" album releases on September 1
We can finally announce that our double debut album entiteled "Repose" will release on the Secret Quarters label on September 1, 2011. All the details will follow shortly.
Redesigned website
As you may or may not have heard or read, there are currently some rumors floating around the web that we might finally get around to release the Repose album sometime soon.

We hereby confirm this rumor.

In celebration of this confirmation, we decided to update the design of our website ever so slightly. Hope you all like it and find it easier on the eyes than the previous design.

Getting back to the topic of the Repose album; we don't want to give you a release date just yet, as there are still some details that need to be worked out. Hang in there a little while longer, if you please.
A hint of real strings - Part 2
We're following up our previous post with yet another behind the scenes peek into the recording of the final version of our Repose album. This time, we're revealing a new part of the Insolence track that has some proper emphasis on the newly recorded strings!

The Insolence clip was just uploaded to our MySpace and ReverbNation profiles. Go there right away, or check it out using the player on omitmusic.com.
A hint of real strings
As you may already know, we recorded a whole bunch of violin and cello tracks a few weeks ago. This is a part of the ongoing labor to complete recording the very final version of our Repose album.

We just uploaded a tiny little taste to our MySpace and ReverbNation profiles! Go there to check out what it sounds like! The clip has been taken from the track "Fatigue". Feel free to compare the new version to the older promo version. The promo version had no real strings in it.

The recordings of real strings (The physical ones made of wood, you know. Not the fake, digital ones.) are officially well on their way.

We started it off in our studio last weekend, with the very talented violinist Mira Ursic. We're really happy about the results and cannot wait to start recording the cellos... Stay tuned!
