Simen Tangen
    Friday February 17, 2012 10:00pm - 10:30pm @ John Dee (Torggata 16, 0181 Oslo, Norway)
    There is an art to finding positivity in life’s low points, and there is an even greater art to putting words and music to it. The bittersweet songs on Simen Tangen’s debut album are soaked in warm and irresistible melancholy, and it’s presented in a way that makes it absolutely impossible to ignore. It is a love story. A tragedy and a comedy that is as real as it is escapist. The songs are very varied, bringing to mind early Belle and Sebastian, Beach Boys, Steely Dan, Nick Drake, even Abba. From crackling lo-fi to pearly, polished folk-pop. From the sunny American west coast to the woods surrounding Oslo on a rainy day – all without effort. Silje Høgevold is Tangen’s heavenly duet partner on the album.
