Swimming (Sax edit feat. Møster)

We’ve always been drawn to the larger-than-life, cinematic, and lush side of the vast musical landscape we travel through as bloggers. There’s something about the time taken to layer in all of the elements, creating a delicate, yet powerful soundscape that’s completely enveloping for listeners. Today is one of those examples, as we bring you a first look and listen to “Swimming.”

Crafted by Norway’s The Island Band (Lars Myrvoll), “Swimming” also features vocalist Maria Due, and in this particular edit, legendary saxophonist Kjetil Møster (Datarock, The Core, Ultralyd). Artfully crafted, this stunning piece harnesses classical instrumentation and modern production in a way that creates a remarkably distinctive experience throughout. The love-laced alternating vocal sections from Myrvoll and Due articulate a story with ease, one that flirts perfectly with the sections of strings, piano, and some gorgeous sax work from Møster.

Remember when
we fell in love that time
We were swimming and
it was warm outside
