A song for today #35: Stillhavet

…and so the days get shorter, the weather gets colder and it just needs a soundtrack, right?

Stillehavet come from Bergen, Norway. They are a newly formed band consisting of Marit Elisabeth Svendsbøe and Gaute Stedje. There doesn’t seem to be much information about them, other than that they used to be part of a band called Funin.

‘Gola Malimbe’ is a beautiful, ethereal track that sounds wonderfully original. Over the course of the six and a half minutes running time it reference alt-folk, electronica, Radiohead, Sigur Ros and the Cocteau Twins. What more could you ask for?
