Scandinavian post-rock six-piece SPURV have announced the release of »En brennende vogn over jordet« with a video featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes imagery. Released via Berlin’s Pelagic Records, the nine-minute epic is the fourth and final single from their forthcoming album »Brefjære« and sees the band layer orchestral gravitas over bone-shaking guitars and panoramic breakdowns.

Principal songwriter Gustav Jørgen Pedersen found inspiration in the sheer magnitude of his new surroundings, having recently moved to Trømso, a remote province far above the Arctic Circle. With the looming presence of the mountains on the horizon, sculpted over aeons by unrelenting winter winds, Pedersen was struck by the resilience and sheer determination of life, from the young birch seedlings outside his window to a single butterfly battling against the breeze.

SPURV bear witness to the perpetual dialogue of ancient nature and new life throughout »Brefjære«. Set for release on September 22nd, the band’s forthcoming full-length is an ongoing exploration of powerful neo-classical composition. On »En brennende vogn over jordet«, an ethereal violin solo from Grammy Award-winning Norwegian musician Inger Hannisdal provides innovative shelter from the band’s crushing overdrive whilst the introduction of instruments including the lap steel, glockenspiel and vibraphone add further depth to the dynamic mastery that SPURV have forged over their decade as a band.

Gustav Jørden Petersen on »En brennende vogn over jordet«: “»En brennende vogn over jordet« is in a sense the centerpiece of the »Brefjære« album. It is a massive, epic track featuring a wonderful violin solo by our friend Inger Hannisdal. For me, it is an auditory painting of the burning sun that shines above mountains and forests, that gives life to all things living and to the wind its speed.”
