Tears & Laughter

Tears & Laughter' is the latest single from Norwegian indie-folk singer-songwriter Bendik Finborud. The track is a hauntingly beautiful acoustic ballad about the grief surrounding the death of Bendik’s mother. For the past few years, this grief has been the subject of his music however, he says:

“I think Tears & Laughter might be the ending to that long exploration of grief. The song to me is most of all about resignation. About finally accepting that there’s nothing more to be done but let go.”

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.
