The supermoon of December, the full cold moon has arrived, and so have the second single from Anima Sola: "Tro, håp og kjærlighet"!
In anticipation of the debut of what will be the band’s fourth full-length album in 2018, the single and music video for the track “Tro, håp og kjærlighet” can be seen and heard here:
Free/Pay-what-you-want download available at bandcamp:
“Tro, håp og kjærlighet” (“Faith, Hope and Love”) is a song with a sharp and accusatory pointed finger. This is the opening track, and the leading line «Can you believe in God when children wish to die?» (transl.) sets the tone for the rest of the album. While it is a peremptory indictment against blind faith, it also speaks volumes about the state of the world. It’s about self-destructiveness, about reaping what you sow, and about the brutality of merely existing. It revolves around loss, and uncomfortably asks all the questions we really don’t want to answer about ourselves.
