Silber Media has worked with Norwegian artist collective Origami Republika  since 1995 and they’re one of Norway’s best-kept secrets as their sound has been described as a mutated folk music, comprised of drone, electronica and other hard to define elements, mixing the modern with the ancient – especially as their sound draws a bit from old Norwegian folk songs. 

“Det Syng for Storegut,” the first single off the Norwegian collective’s latest album, Absolut Gehor manages to fuse elements of drone, industrial noise, folk and jazz in a heady, surreal mix that evokes the sound of the post-apocaylpyse; in other words, melancholy, anxious, unsettled and yet possessing a hushed beauty.
