Just Another Day
The third single of the year, Just Another Day, is out now.
The song was written about the refugee crisis, the title underlining the unbearably slow rate at which decisions are made; "...we will help in just another day". Just Another Day describes the absurdity of the situation with an upbeat and unconcerned summer sound, contrasted
by marring lyrics criticising the way we view the crisis.
"Our doors have crumbled, and we're all so humble
At least if we see an image of a dead child once a while"

Where Norway’s inhospitable winter meets the US’ searing folk tradition, we find Bendik Finborud. (25) The young songwriter plays intimate folk pop with lyrics about life as a hopeful, love craving young man.
The first single from the album, “Bargaining”, was released in the summer of 2020, accompanied by a self-made hand painted music video. The video consists of just under 2000 separate acrylic paintings, traced (rotoscoped) on thin paper over a computer screen. Ballade.no called it "[...] one of the most beautiful things we've seen in a long time." The video has also earned a nomination for best music video at Bergen International Film Festival (BIFF) 2020.
"An expressive singer and precise guitarist with a modern sound, based in the classic songwriting tradition."
- Anne Grete Preus
