It’s a Jazz-Influenced Piece of Instrumental Bliss
Soaked in lush, reverberated guitar licks and exquisite pieces of improvisation – The new single Bommer På Alt from Norwegian outfit Fred Paa Jord is a lush piece of instrumental, indie-leaning jazz that’s perfect for the summer months. It’s a track that’s purpose-built for summer nights and lounging carelessly – if you’ve had a day of stress at work, this might just be the antidote.
