The New Scandinavian Cool.
We all know artists these days have a varied repertoire. Still, Harr & Hartberg took the music industry in Norway by surprise when they released their first jazz album.
Their music feature a triple treat; Sublime lyrics by the famous Norwegian author Lars Saabye Christensen delivered with a Chet-Baker-esque voice by one of Norway's international acclaimed actors, teamed up with a hot double bass and outstanding compositions by the versatile musician Aslak Hartberg. This is seriousness served softly and their catchy tunes will sneak into your soul.
Producer, the Grammy-nominated R&B artist Jarle Bernhoft and engineer, sound-magician Bjarne Stensli have succeeded in keeping the soulful sound of Harr & Hartberg, while approaching a more modern sound throughout the whole album.
Some of the best jazz musicians in Scandinavia guarantees a thrilling musical experience when their new album 'Scar' is released in September 2020.
The first single - Mirror Song, featuring Malin Pettersen – will be released May 15. 2020.
