Song of the Day: “Shadows” by Heyerdahl

Today’s song is “Shadows” by Heyerdahl. This song is off the band’s debut album ØEN out now on Red Eye Transit.
Searching for inspiration through change, HEYERDAHL left their hometown confines of Oslo to record an album. They rented a lighthouse in Stadt on the west coast of Norway and set up a temporary studio overlooking the vast ocean. Accustomed to life in the city, the winter storm of 2011 hit with hurricane force winds and as the massive waves crashed against the windows of the lighthouse this change had begun to take hold. Isolated in unfamiliar surroundings and intense weather conditions, they began to reflect on Norway before it’s rise in wealth, and regional folklore regarding the ocean, storms, shipwrecks, widows, ghosts, love and companionship began to seep into the lyrics and sounds. Feeling as explorers themselves, they took their name from the great Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl.
