Many bands have a fervent commitment to the music they make. Fervent Mind is such a band! They plays experimental rock with elements from post rock and metal as well as dream pop, trip hop and contemporary jazz. A rather interesting and unusual combination I must admit. Their music balances on a fine line between the rough and the delicate. Bands such as Porcupine Tree, Mew, Massive Attack, Radiohead and Susanne Sundfør are strong sources of inspiration.
Five years ago composer and vocalist Live Sollid formed Fervent Mind, and those years are used to develop a distinctive sound. Fervent Mind has become a band known for their intense and energetic live performances and their captivating and progressive soundscape. The debut album Tranquilize from the Oslo band will be released March 22. The cover art is by the internationally renowned Norwegian visual artist Anders Røkkum.
