The song Oceana will be the second taste of the upcoming album from the band Matterhorn, and the album will be released by Apollon Records early next year. Tommy Sebastian Halseth, main man behind the band, tells us about Oceana, « A sanctuary, a holding point, a place where you can lower your shoulders and breathe out, regain energy and surplus. For everyone, but also for those who are struggling a little, with addiction, illness and trauma. It is certainly a beautiful and relaxing song.».
Aura Noi was the first single by Norwegian avant-garde progressive act Matterhorn. The song revolves around a dark aura (reflecting its title) and develops an interesting mix of raw instruments and electronic soundscapes with soft melodic vocals. Tommy Sebastian Halseth’s comments, «This is a very personal song for me. It was written in memory of my father-in-law who lost the fight against cancer».
About the mixing he mentions «I am very happy with the result of Aura Noir, Tor-Helge Skei (Manes) did a perfect job with the mix. Matterhorn was initially formed by Tommy Sebastian Halseth in 2015, but fully emerged as a band in 2018«». Matterhorn have slowly made a name on the interesting and varied music scene in Trondheim and Norway with bands such as Atrox, Godsend, Griffin, Manes, Wattamezz and In The Woods.
