Norwegian progressive folk rock four-piece Tusmörke return with a new album entitled Fjernsyn i Farver on May 4th, out via Karisma Records. The band has teamed up with The Prog Sphere for an exclusive premiere of the title song. Listen HERE – or on Soundcloud HERE

The band comments on the track: “It’s like Tusmörke; you get it or you don’t. This track is probably Tusmörke at it’s most (Norwegian) new wavy, with a healthy dose of psychedelia, sci-fi and semantics.”

Tusmörke is a psychedelic, progressive folk rock band from Skien, Norway. Fjernsyn i Farver (Colour Television) is their 6th full length album, loosely based on two concepts of light, time and reality. How everything we see is a reflection made by light from the sun hitting an object – The reflected light is registered by our eyes, but the reflection is also sent out in all other possible directions, travelling at the speed of light. The unobstructed reflections would travel forever onwards into space. If we could devise a means to move faster than light, we could overtake these reflections and view them again, seeing history backwards The second idea is that light is not seen as anything until it hits something and is reflected back, creating an image in colour for the human eye. So if there were no physical objects to reflect the light, there would be an eternal totality, a darkness of sorts, since light would not be seen.

All very mind-blowing, but Tusmörke are not afraid of anyone or anything – not even bafflingly complex theories of existence. They gladly tackle, grapple and wrestle with ideas they barely comprehend, yet keenly perceive to be significant. Fjernsyn I Farver is available for pre-order HERE
