Nordkvist – These are the days

This sound feels a lot like the start of a journey to a place called “home”. The new release of Nordkvist contains an irresistible amount of this signature “let’s go” energy that keeps you going from start to finish.

A tight sound meets a driving rhythm and an energetic instrument setting to form “These are the days”, a unique kind of storyteller that contains a signature-styled vibe. The vocals are a perfect blend of gritty, youthful, and relatable. And one of the reasons why the sound feels so unique is because the vibe spans continents if you will. Others out there described the sound as “nordic american groove”. In my opinion, the tune contains a great mix of emotion, passion, drive, and melancholy. Using the right amount of each of these ingredients, the track gets an uplifting and familiar tone that feels like coming home from a long journey. The steady groove and the pristine vocals feel like you’ve been there before, giving the sound a well-known texture.

The thing I love most about the signature sound of Nordkvist is its versatile nature. These guys are not afraid to blend genre-specific sounds to form their new sound, and that’s what it’s about out there. Don’t take just my word for it, listen for yourself! No matter if it’s the western-soaked “Gone”, the emotional americana novel “We take no prisoners”, or the spotlight-seeking songwriter tune “We let the circus pay”, every tune takes elements of well-known genres and combines them with a fresh and youthful element without fully transforming the original vibe, but rather adding to it. And that’s what makes the sound of Nordkvist stand out in a sea of sound out there.
