Nowhere To Be
The fourth single of the year, Nowhere To Be, is out now.
A simple and calm song about grief, Nowhere To Be was recorded in its entirety by Bendik Finborud alone at home, saxophones and all.
Have a listen to it here:
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."
