Northlight

Northlight representerar Sverige på öppningen av Youbloom Connect, The Global Music Village. Den 1 Juni öppnas den nya tjänsten Youbloom Connect en sajt där artister kan finna varandra och göra turneér ihop. Första konserten hålls den 1 juni i Dublin där Northlight från Karlstad representerar sverige. De andra banden är Dreaming of Jupiter (Irland), Headtrip Acoustic (Irland), Carito Plaza (Chile).

Det är mycket på gång kring Northlight. Den helt nya låten ‘A Celebration of Humanity’ släpps på alla plattformar världen över den 17:e maj tillsammans med sitt fotomosaik-omslag bestående av 532 individuella bilder inskickade av bandets följare.

”Vi ville skapa en känsla av samhörighet och gemenskap, inte bara musikaliskt eller i låttexten, utan i projektet som helhet. Så vi bad våra följare om hjälp med att skapa omslaget till den här låten och resultatet blev bortom fantastiskt”, berättar bandets sångare Victor Bergh.

Bandets experimentella och världsliga influenser skiner igenom tydligt i ‘A Celebration of Humanity’ där bland annat en japansk koto, en persisk santoor och en keltisk hammered dulcimer är några av instrumenten som hörs i låten. 

”Vi kände ett behov av att utmana oss själva, så vi kastade bort allt vi visste om låtskrivande, förträngde allt vi hade lärt oss om hur en låt skulle skrivas och började om från noll med ingenting annat än ett blankt papper”, berättar bandet själva om den kreativa processen. 

Trots de minst sagt okonventionella influenserna dock lyckas man på ett galant sätt balansera mellan ett originellt men samtidigt, i allra högsta grad, kommersiellt, uppfriskande och radiovänligt resultat vars kärna tydligt placerar sig i popgenren.

NORTHLIGHT har sina rötter i Värmlands djupa skogar där bandet bildades i Karlstad 2012. Sångaren, Victor Bergh, kommer ursprungligen från den lilla bruksorten Edsvalla med knappa tusen invånare, och det var under gymnasietiden som han träffade tidigare klasskamraten och bandets basist, Per Eresund. Tillsammans, efter en mattelektion under det tredje och sista året, beslutade de sig för att starta ett band, till samtliga i klassens stora förvåning. Självlärda och utan någon tidigare erfarenhet av att spela instrument lärde de sig snabbt konsten att skriva musik. Kort därefter anslöt sig även ledgitarristen Fredrik Andersson och trummisen Johan Köhler till bandet och kvartetten var nu komplett.
