The ensemble Silent Velcro is a mirror image of Anders Hofstad Sørås’ musical universe.
The music is instrumental and cinematic - a blend of rock, prog, roots and jazz, called ”Doom-Americana”. This is rock music stirred through a hot Texas chili stew, performed with the attitude of the modern Norwegian jazz musician.
The musicians on the record are merited on the Norwegian and Scandinavian music scene. They contribute with both versatility and strong personal expressions.
Resembling artists might be Earth, Daniel Lanois, Bushman’s Revenge, Dirty Three and Tortoise, among others.
Anders Hofstad Sørås – electric guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar, lap steel Andreas Stensland Løwe – piano, rhodes, organs, synthesizers Jo Berger Myhre – electric bass, baritone guitar, upright bass Gunnar Sæter – drums, percussion Guest: André Kassen – saxophone
Appear could be the “soundtrack to a bit scary, but also lyrical an beautiful western movie”
