New Video and New Single From Norwegian Noise Punks DAUFØDT Streaming; Sophomore Full-Length "Aromaterapi" Set For Release September 23rd Through FYSISK FORMAT. Watch the New Video (by Anna Kuznik) for the Track "Dødsangst".
The band says:
"One of the two main goals with the record has been to push ourselves to the absolute limit. Much of the music that both we and Lasse appreciate is music that
pushes itself to the point that you fear that everything will fall apart. It is this excitement and energy that we have tried to capture.
The second goal has been to create an album where the listener does not know where he has us - that the listener should not feel safe with us and the album - it should not be pleasant to listen to Aromaterapi."
Hailing from the dark and religious south of Norway, Daufødt released their first single in
2019, and since then they've been breaking the speed limit. As one of the most sonically challenging and visually unique bands of their generation, Daufødt swept the floor of the underground with
their debut album "1000 Island" and won the Norwegian grammy award in the ROCK category. When the band now is due to release the record number, they have chosen not to do it the easy way.
They could easily become the NEXT BIG NAME IN ROCK, but - no thanks! gotother things to do. Instead, the Daufødt-gang circled back to the underground, hooked up with Lasse Marhaug, associated Sunn0)))-member and recent producer of Jenny Hval and Thurston Moore. In the spirit of punk, they will continue to snarl and spit in your face rather than whisper the things you want to hear into your ear.
On their upcoming sophmore album "Aromaterapi", Marhaug has challenged the band on all levels and pumped them into ABSOLUTE SONIC MAYHEM-mode, giving associations to similar noise-rock-mongers as
Napalm Death, Swans, The Body and Årabrot. Likewise, the scorning lyrics of the debut that made local billionaires spam singer Annika with self-righteous messenges has been sharpened into
something even more destructive and dangerous.
The band releases with the single Dagsverk/Dødsangst/Verkdags three tracks from the album.
Vocalist Annika says this about the tracks they have selected: 'Dagsverk/Dødsangst/Verkdags is about time moving too fast and too slow, and the combination og productivity as the only road to
salvation and self-isolation as a toxic trait.'
The band says: 'Dødsangst is the sonic representation of getting your brain thrown into a sement mixer. The sound of your brain getting thrown around all over the place, just like when life seems to chaotic and overwhelming. Dagsverk/Dødsangst/Verkdags is one part relatively controlled music and two parts chaos - like not having control, then thinking you have everything under controll before realizing you don’t understand anything.'
Dødsangst is a lot faster and more chaotic than the songs on our first album - which is the whole point of our collaboration with Lasse (Marhaug, producer) and our new album Aromaterapi.
