FALKEVIK combines the Nordic jazz tradition with quirky and elegant pop melodies that will linger in your ear. Vocalist and pianist Julie Falkevik Tungevåg – whose clear and unique voice instantly mesmerises the listener – playfully explores the soundscapes of the piano by applying live electronics and effects, which, in turn, provides a distinctive electronic vibe. They create a fascinating musical sphere in which they confidently merge the singer-songwriter style with lyrical instrument passages, riff-based solos and the flexibility of a jazz trio, demonstrating versatility and thrilling inventiveness.
Falkevik will release their second album New Constellations in September 2021. The album’s first single Amplify Me was released 30th April and features multi-instrumentalist Ola Kvernberg.
