First single from Intertwine´s debut album ‘Goraikoo’ out now

June 26, 2015

Intertwine is the musical brainchild of Norwegian artist and architect Tarjei Zakarias Ekelund. ‘We Are Fools For Singing This Song”, first single from his debut album ‘Goraikoo’ is now out on all digital platforms worldwide.

‘Goraikoo” is scheduled for release November 6th on Brilliance Records. “Goraikoo” means “coming of the light” in Japanese. It is a word referring to a very specific sunrise – namely the one seen from Mount Fuji. It is an old Japanese custom to climb the old volcano’s 3 776 meters at night. Upon reaching the top, the Japanese sit down to wait for the sunrise. The dark night is slowly torn apart by a spectacular blood red horizon, and finally, by the sun itself. This is goraikoo.

The record was largely written while Tarjei lived and studied in Tokyo, and as the title indicates, it is the end of a long walk in the dark. It is an introverted and personal record, about loneliness and longing. Not the result of a strong vision, but rather a collection of fumbling footprints.

The record is located somewhere between pop and ambient. Its floating soundscape is largely produced by a rusty old cornet which Tarjei’s father, Bjørn, found amid the trash of a local marching band, many years ago. The ten tracks were recorded, mixed and produced by Tarjei in collaboration with band members Aleksander Berg and Ruben Nesse in a small cabin by the beach, just outside Larvik, Norway. They distilled countless of sketches and ideas into ten songs that felt related by a kind of darkness: That kind of darkness that fills the air right before the sunrise.

Two new singles from upcoming talents out on Balsa Wood!

June 19, 2015

We have the pleasure to present to new singles on Balsa Wood from the upcoming talents from Bergen; Niilas and Foreground Set. Both are playing on our label night 12. August on Dattera Til Hagen together with Boska and Skatebård.


Niilas is the middle name of this new 18 year old producer from Bergen, Norway. Having a background in guitar and piano from his early teens, Niilas takes inspiration from all sorts of artists and bands from the likes of Kings Of Convenience, Casiokids and Röyksopp, to more modern producers like Drippin and Cashmere Cat. Almost all of which, hail from Bergen.

Niilas makes everything from hard-banging club tracks to sampled hip-hop beats. All of these has influenced his style to where it is today, and where it may go in the future. Ocelote is the result of this, and after doing remixes for the likes of Sondre Lerche and Stockhaus, he is now ready for his own track on Balsa Wood.

Foreground Set is an uprising Bergen based electronic artist, known for his catchy electronic feel-good rhythms. Infused by the uplifting beats of funk, soul, jazz and hip hop, Foreground Set adds a certain intricacy to his music, setting himself alongside his successful electronic compatriots.

All Peak Run came into existence late August 2014, and is actually an ode to EA’s SSX3 snowboard game, known for the super uber boost, over the top tricks, such as double quadrouple backflips while breakdancing on the snowboard accompanied by one of the best soundtracks ever heard. The infamous all peak run is a run where the rider ascends from the highest peak to the bottom, lasting around 20 minutes, with the bar so high it only took a perfect, clean run to earn gold. This track is a celebration of nostalgia, dedication, maximalism, super uber boost and gold medals!
