“Konradsen make music that is minimal and maximal in all the right places, suggesting they could go anywhere in the future.” The Fader

Norwegian newcomers Konradsen return with new single ‘Baby Hallelujah’, which is coming out via Practise Music (Woman’s Hour, Squid, Osquello). [listen here]
‘Baby Hallelujah’ – the achingly beautiful new track from Konradsen – has a hymnal quality to it; a song that is hewn from the mess that surrounds life. Texturally the ambient foley and hushed sounds of friends and family that surround the song add a genuine depth to the writing and help foster a sense of community and its healing potential.
“Baby Hallelujah is about dealing with the aftermath of life. It’s simple and honest. Just piano, vocals and samples of the people we love.” – Konradsen
Konradsen are Eirik and Jenny and a bedroom in Oslo with synths and plants. Konradsen are also Erlend, and Ivar, and Øyvind and Big Bruce. And that guy who inspired you at a café in Copenhagen, and the mother who attends every show. And Sara, and Sebastian, and Tom, who once said that the music sounded like family love. And the music is also like a big family, with all those voices and sounds that have the need to have the last word. At the heart of it all: a gentle piano and a fragile-yet-strong voice that brings together all these people who are all part of Konradsen.
‘Baby Hallelujah’ has been mixed Kåre Vestrheim and mastered by Morgan Nicolaysen.
