A new Scandinavian Super band!
What to expect when you gather such star musicians?

Thea Grant (voice, electronics/effects)
Josefin Runsteen (violin, mandola, voice)
Eirik Hegdal (sopranino-/C Melody-/bariton saxophone, clarinet, synth)
Per Texas Johansson (tenor saxophone, clarinet, bass- & contra bass clarinet)
Anja Lauvdal (piano, synth, pump organ)
Ole Morten Vågan (double bass & electric bass)
Hans Hulbækmo (drums, percussion, mouth harp)

In the case of “Eklektisk Samband” it is hard to say, but the result of their first release “turnchest” is really a wonder package of borderless/genreless music!

Initiator Eirik Hegdal has put together a septet of musicians/producers/composers who happily operate in all musical nooks and crannies. Inspiration is neatly picked and borrowed from a wide range of musicians and bands, such as; Kate Bush, Alogte Oho & His Sounds of Joy, Maria Kannegaard, Altin Gün, Solange, Raymond Scott, Dizu Plaatjies, Milton Babbitt, Carla Bley, Jimmy Giuffre, and most of all; from each other, within this eclectic connection.
