Nuborg is back! ‘Sliding Off the Edge of the World’ album out now

Having worked throughout 2014 to bring out a series of brilliant preview singles, Nuborg (the project of a songwriter from Norway called Gunhild Nyborg) has started 2015 with the final collection of tracks. Here’s the title track – hit play before you continue reading:

As you can see, this is understated, contemplative and high quality music with a unique production approach. It’s not bombastic or in your face, but gradually grows into something genuinely epic and beautiful. This is something you could have said about any of the singles from last year, but as a full package of nine songs the effect is even bigger.

Not all the songs are as ominous as the above, and there are many lighter moments to provide contrast. It makes for a fully rounded album of ambient sound – there may not be a lot of pace to many of the songs, but this is music for the patient, and it will grow on you quicker that you expect.

NuBorg – One Day

One of the most intriguing acts we have come across this year, Nuborg is back again after a short break with new single ‘One Day’. It’s just the latest in a string of singles that have stretched throughout 2014 so far, and there’s an album collecting them all together out soon – though the date is yet to be announced. Keep an eye on her homepage for more information if this one intrigues you as much as it does us.

With a Kate Bush (topical) like vocal, this is perhaps her most affecting single since ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’ – sultry, dangerous, and with a killer ending.Enjoy this – songwriting this thoughtful and detailed doesn’t come along every day.

 

NuBorg – ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’

Haunting and atmospheric, ‘Sliding Off the Edge of the World’ is the latest track from NuBorg – a Norwegian singer who is releasing her album as a monthly collection of singles until the full compliment is available in August.

Sitting on top an effective bass melody and understated orchestration, the song displays a really strong vocal from NuBorg – this is the first I’d heard of the monthly single project, but I can highly recommend listening back to previous tracks on the YouTube page too.
