TROJKA from Bergen , Norway are ready with their excellent debutalbum – I speilvendthet.
The album was studio-recorded by Njål Paulsberg (Young Dreams, Advanced Language, Put Your Hands Up For Neo-Tokyo) and will be published by Tik and Apollon Records in June 2017 outside Norway . The album displays Trojka’s versatility – from groovy, danceable hooks to touching ballads, from jazzy soundscapes to energetic, hectic synth and bass lines in varying time signatures. Their texts are equally varied, encompassing songs from an eclectic dive into video games (the Game), a humorous tribute to the human brain (Food for Thought), and darkly poetic introspection (Drømmeløs, Always a mystery, Until Next Goodbye). The creative lyrics are matched by the cover art by Ronja Svenning Berge.
The band cites Yes, E.L.P, King Crimson, Radiohead ,The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Genesis & Neal Morse as some of their influences.
Trojka have existed in the underground scene of Bergen for over ten years, and a performing experience thereafter. The singles «I speilvendthet» and «Drømmeløs» have been released prior to the album and have received good reviews in Norwegian magazines such as «Deichmanske musikkblogg» and «Stoff». The album well be available in LP, CD and digital formats.
