Norwegian band Norsk Rakk release music video for “Millioner av Sandkorn”
MUMBAI: Norsk Rakk is releasing Millioner av Sandkorn (Millions of Grains of Sand) as his next music video. This is especially aimed at all non-Norwegian speaking bands around the world. This is a beautiful hand-drawn text video with lyrics translated into English by Heather Fuglevik.
Millioner av Sandkorn (Millions of Grains of Sand) is taken from the latest album ‘Balansekunstnere’ which was released in October 2020 when the second wave of Covid19 hit Norway and cut short most of Norsk Rakk’s touring and promotional plans. Balansekunstnere is an album that the band are very proud of and that is why the band have now chosen to give the songs on this album a much needed love and attention.
Musically, this is undeniably the characteristic sound of Norsk Rakk. Easy and rhythmic guitar, animated by a strong drum and bass section. Completed by a playful and captivating brass arrangement. It is a track that breathes vacation, free time and summer. We are part of a special time where we have to celebrate a little differently in Norway. With this song on your walkman, you can travel to a vacation destination with sandy beaches, tequila, and mariachi trumpets.
In a world dominated by English-language music, the band has a clear goal: to produce good rock with lyrics in Norwegian. Hence the name, Norsk Rakk. Balansekunstnere is available digitally and on cassette and vinyl, with a limited number of prints on green vinyl. The cover is a beautiful center page that includes the lyrics for all the songs on the album. The lyrics are written by the band’s vocalist and bassist, Torstein Eriksen. The record is produced by Jorn Christensen and released on Fucking North Pole Records. Norsk Rakk’s mission statement is to play and deliver rock with their brass section in the center of the image. Balansekunstnere is a prime example that shows they have more to offer than ska / punk related material. Audiences can expect a lot of variation and other kinds of musicality from Norsk Rakk.
