about

Torgeir Waldemar took the Norwegians and Norway’s music media by surprise with his eponymous debut album in 2014. Who’d have thought that the dark-clad, long haired and bearded man was going to deliver an album that would bewitch and fascinate us. An acoustic masterpiece, it was as if it had been created in the rehearsal room of a young troubadour from Laurel Canyon circa 1970.

While his last album cultivated a pure, acoustic expression, this time Torgeir Waldemar has adopted more powerful measures. And nothing is more natural for him. With his many years as a guitar hero in various rock bands, it was just a question of time before distorted notes also would manifest themselves in his solo career. «No Offending Borders» is a gloriously composite work, spanning from honest, acoustic laments to grandiose rock songs.

«Bottom of the Well», the album’s second single, is now out on Jansen Plateproduksjon. Torgeir Waldemar gives his listeners a bleak and violent song, and he says this about it: «Bottom of the Well» describes a situation where you notice that the end is nigh. When you know you’re standing on the platform waiting for the last train that will take you to the other side, where you will find peace. Phew.

Here Torgeir Waldemar returns to the sound of his debut and shows that he still has the ability to write slow, quiet songs that nevertheless tugs at your heartstrings. Hold on.

lyrics

I can see the bottom of the well
And there’s nothing more to tell

I can hear a voice from within
And its telling me to jump right in

Its the echo of the boatmanns call
And my illusion is about to fall

It’s a reward at the end of the rope
Its funny to have that kind of hope

But I’m gonna walk the streets of gold
At least thats what I’ve been told

I can see the bottom of the well
And now there’s nothing more to tell
