Dævvskævv's Episode Four to release on 8.8.2018

Exactly one year after the release of the electronically oriented and tape infused Episode #3, Dævvskævv are due to release the next part of their episodic series of albums and/or EPs (pick your favorite word). The fourth episode, simply named Episode Four, creates its own musical universe, fusing metal, pop, electronica and the avant-garde, spread across its total of eleven tracks.

In addition to playing around with various genre crossbreeds, Dævvskævv also play around with links to other projects that the Dævvskævv’s members are a part of, creating a link to the orchestral doom metal band Omit with the re-composition and partial remix of Omit’s recent track Medusa Truth, in the form of the track entitled Maya Lie.

Dævvskævv’s members are Cecilie Langlie and Tom Simonsen.

Omit's Medusa Truth Part 2 album releases on 13 April

It's with great pleasure that we can finally announce that Omit's new album is almost upon us. The release date was just set for 13 April 2018, so make sure to update your calendars.

We've also decided to start handling those pre-orders right away, so that everyone's able to head over here to secure a physical copy of the first print of this release.

Make your pre-order of Medusa Truth Part 2.

As we're sure most of you have guessed, Medusa Truth Part 2 is the follow-up to the ambitious Medusa Truth Part 1, released back in late November of 2014.

The music for Medusa Truth Part 2 was written around the same time as Part 1, in 2014 and early 2015, but since the Omit members were also busy with (lots of) other musical projects during this time, the recordings didn’t get started until 2017. The recordings were completed over a few sessions in the last half of 2017 and got set for an early 2018 release window.

We're sure that you'll find that Omit's music continues to evolve with the release of this latest album. Medusa Truth Part 2 certainly contains the heavy, melodic, orchestral and dynamic type of doom metal that Omit have become known for.

Dævvskævv's Episode #3 was just released worldwide!

The third release from Dævvskævv was just released. Head to your favorite download and/or streaming service to give it a listen.

This is the third episode in Dævvskævv’s episodic series of releases, wherein each episode creates its own, tiny musical universe. This is also Dævvskævv’s third release in the span of just one year.

Dævvskævv has been known to take pride in their motto of "no regard for genre or genre boundaries", and as such this episode certainly represents something different when compared to previous releases. As for genres contained in this one, the range is perhaps narrower, with Dævvskævv focusing on electronic and synth based music, much of it recorded to analog tape. One might sum it up as a meeting of electronica, dance music, the alternative and the avant-garde - with a few orchestral elements thrown in for good measure.

Dævvskævv is Cecilie Langlie and Tom Simonsen.

All tracks composed, arranged and produced by Tom Simonsen.

Musicians:
Cecilie Langlie: Vocals.
Tom Simonsen: Guitars, various synths, one particularly inexpensive keyboard, tape machines, digital drums and programming.
Mira Ursic: Violins.

Cover artwork and Dævvskævv logos by Tom Simonsen.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Tom Simonsen at the Secret Quarters studios. Released by Secret Quarters Records.

Released through:
24-7, 7digital, 8tracks, Akazoo, Amazon MP3, Apple iTunes, CD Baby, Deezer, eMusic, Google Music Store, GreatIndieMusic, Groove, iHeartRadio, Inprodicon, Kdigital, MediaNet, Omnifone, Rhapsody, Shazam, Slacker Radio, SoundExchange, Spotify, Tidal, Tradebit, Yandex, YouTube Music.
