On Perfect View, Swedish producer Hannes Norrvide returns with his third full length and it’s warmer and more inviting than any of his previous work. The album is composed of largely instrumental pieces, focusing more on beats, samples and general ambiance than its predecessor, last year’s Growing Seeds. Tracks like “Breaking Silence” and “Barcelona” highlight this shift in direction and overall mood, while tracks such as “Another Day” and “Vibrant Brother” stay true to Norrvide’s signature form. Overall this album ventures more towards rave than no-wave and this is perhaps most evidenced by witnessing their live show where Norrvide is joined by Vår frontman Loke Rahbek.
The band will embark on their first European and us tours this spring and summer, joining Chelsea Wolfe in Europe this April/May and touring the US in late May beginning with the Chaos in Tejas festival and ending with Brooklyn’s Northside festival. They will be joined on the US tour by fellow Sacred Bones roster artist, Pharmakon and Body of Light from Arizona. LFY will also be hitting the west coast for the first time in mid June.
