Petter O Hanna – Monsieur Delire

Petter O Hanna is duo consisting of Petter Vågan and Hanna Gjermundrød. This is their second opus, out four years after their debut on FMR. Delicate improvisations, mostly guitar and vocals, but both musicians are multi-instrumentalists. Pure voice, treated voice, acoustic guitar, textural guitarscapes, trumpet, electronics – each song introduces new elements, yet the whole thing is pretty stripped down. Most pieces are successful or at least intriguing, with this oh-so Scandinavian “warmth within the cold” feel.
