It’s a Gorgeous Slice of Summer Indie
By Frank Bell
Norwegian outfit Fred Paa Jord have just dropped your future sound of the summer in their stunning new single Bysykkel – Rich in lush, psychedelic influences and plenty of indie elements, it’s a wonderful piece that flows perfectly throughout. It’s an instrumental but you never find yourself missing a vocal line as there’s so much melody throughout the piece.
Based in Norway, Fred Paa Jord initially started as a jamming affair between guitarist Anders Winsents and drummer Per Elling Kobberstad in early 2019. Their name, translating to “Peace on Earth,” was derived from the title of a demo they recorded – which was inspired by disappointment in the way humans treat the earth and others. After getting started with a minimal microphone set up and eight-track cassette recorder, the group got straight to it – and they haven’t let up since.
