It is always such a rare delight when an old friend makes something truly special, and has the courage to put it out there for the world to see. That is exactly what Simen Tangen has accomplished with his debut album, being released today. The reviews tells us he is the musical version of Karl Ove Knausgård – only conveying his melancholy on a happier tune – and although his lyrics surely deserve the literary comparison (and praise), it’s really all about the catchy melodies, the harmonious duets. Why not go see for yourself? Release concert at Blå tonight.
