Living is the project of Bergen-based producer and artist Lucas de Almeida. It started in 2015 as a solo project, but soon picked up bassist Nora Tårnesvik (Marbe Pools, Frøder) and drummer Sturla Kverneng (Hvitmalt Gjerde) for its energetic live performances. Living has released a single via Diamond Club late 2015 and is ready for a second single release, “Cerulean” via Brilliance Records. The band is also confirmed to play SXSW-festival in March.
Living’s music is hard to describe, ebbing and flowing in and out of many styles and genres. The music is best appreciated live, where improvisation and playfulness rule. Living creates music for the body and soul by blending psychedelic and dreamy harmonies and melodies with groovy and tropical rhythms. It is a fusion of electronic and organic heard best through great speakers and with lots of room for movement and dance.
