New 7″ Hanny – Xantofylla

Hanny releases new music on the 7-inch Xantofylla, an ode to the pigment that gives the yellow colour in petals. The music carries with it moments so precious that a camera would ruin them. The A-side Hareskoven is for everyone who is looking for 2024’s most catchy melody, or who has a sentimental yearning for Danish nature. The B-side Psaligrafi is the band’s own etude with harp zither, synth, guitar and clarinet in quartet. Hanny has been an active part of Oslo’s music scene since the debut Moderning in 2005. Xantofylla is the band’s third release on vinyl.
Hanny is Marie Borgersen Kvamme (vocals, guitar, synth, harp zither, diatonic accordion), Dag Ivan Homlong (guitar, bass) and Roy Amundsen (guitar, bass, drums).

Xantofylla is produced by Hanny and Thomas Meidell. Music and lyrics by Marie Borgersen Kvamme, master by Marius Ergo and graphic design by Aslak Gurholt/Yokoland.

The music is released by Metronomicon Audio and distributed by Diger Distro.
Releaseparty saturday june 8th at Mir, where the stage is filled with the band’s love of waltz, grunge and dance bands. Warming up by the epically marvellous S.l.y.c.

Geko Fattal & Center of the Universe – Buss for tog / Hest er best

Geko Fattal came to Norway from Lebanon in 1996 to study at the University of Oslo He had with him a couple of trousers, experiences from war, a disgust for injustice and an Oud. In 1998 the norwegian princess got a got a horse as a present from the billionaire RIMI-Hagen. With this in mind Geko set out to use irony to focus on the injustice of society. From this came the song “Hest er best”, today the horse is 25 years and the differences in society keeps growing.

Center of the Universe was tired of playing the old version of the track and needed a version with more beats and bass to play in clubs. He was also tired of gBuss for togh, replacement buses for works on the railway that will continue to 2033. Now they release a double single that hopefully will remain relevant until all the tracks are replaced!
