Giant Sky celebrate the release of their self-titled debut album today, along with a full movie made for the tracks. It is a unique audio-visual representation of the album, which will surely take the listener to another dimension! From Erlend Aastad Viken, the songwriter of post rock underground legends Soup comes the debut album of Giant Sky. Collaborating with musicians from Trondheim Symphonic Orchestra, Electrobeetz, Paper Palace, Motorpsycho, Spidergawd, Sturla, The Moving Oos and more, the table is set for an interesting crossover.
Pitched as the bastard child of Brian Eno and Nick Drake making the new Blade Runner soundtrack with Kevin Parker, the bar is set ambitiously high. Even so, the audio blend of this album should be able to resonate with music lovers across the spectrum.
