“A truly timeless songwriter, his acoustic style is rooted in the past but firmly looks to the present, sitting out of time, out of place, but thoroughly occupying its own identity.” – Clash
Rising Norwegian singer-songwriter Jarle Skavhellen recently shared his debut 4-song Pilots EP, exclusively premiered on Clash. Containing three original songs and one cover, it showcases his elegant and captivating delivery, taking the best bits of traditional folk, yet firmly looking to the present.
Listen To “Pilots EP” Here:
Speaking to Clash, Jarle explains: “I had a lot of fun recording these tracks. Producer Tyler Johnson and me had free range in this amazing studio that collects obscure instruments, several of which ended up in the background of the final takes. Lyrically this EP explores personal themes like love and ending friendships. There’s also a take on a century old folk tune (‘Hang Me, Oh Hang Me’) that highlights some of the original inspiration behind the EP.”
Pilots EP is out now. Stay tuned for more new music very soon.
