Fly North! is an invitation – a visa to the Scandinavian school of cool, with release from rule. Come here, come hear! Softly stated virtuosi, memorable motif, and a sonic panorama that, prima vista, becomes a part of you.
Fly North! is a refuge; an escape plan from an increasingly anxious world. Fly to the higher regions of your sensibilities, to a stress-free environment offering space and solace: room for contemplation and calm.
This is an album to be experienced as ‘an entirety’. There are individual tracks and there is individuality in the performance, but essentially, there is a oneness. It is the sweetest of suites.
This is a gentle giant of an album, Nordic nuance lovingly crafted to soothe your soul. So fl y north, free from convention, no passport control, no baggage. And if you’re already ‘north’ then you’re at home!
