The muses of La Musa: Tuvaband

Tuvaband was dreamed up by the multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer extraordinaire, Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser. Infusing the air waves with some serious Indie Rock eclecticism, Tuvaband has racked up a hefty 40 million total streams on Spotify; this artist is no stranger to critical acclaim. Coming back to bite, her latest offering New Orders is an album that unfurls all of her creativity – and we can’t get enough.

Drawing inspiration from culture-shaping artists like Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, and David Lynch – Tuvaband’s oeuvre oozes feminine mystique. Traversing soundscapes from Indie-Pop, and piano-driven Folk, to transcendant Post-Rock – multitudes are wrapped up into one neat package. With Tuvaband’s soft, lilting vocals added into the mix – you’ve got a recipe for greatness.

Music by Berman: a-ha

A-ha have returned with their new album and film, ‘True North’,This film also include a special behind-the-scenes featurette, exclusive to cinemas.

The original idea for True North was for the Norwegian trio, formed of Morten Harket, Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and Magne Furuholmen, to record their first session in the wonderous studio location just 90km above the Arctic Circle then to film it. Eventually, the project expanded into more of a production, and they were joined by the talented Norwegian Orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic. What spawned from these sessions is a magnificent album, and film to match, that details the band’s vision of a collective connection to the environment.

Since their worldwide breakthrough with ‘Take On Me’ in 1985, a-ha have continued to adapt and evolve. Now, with what is both their 11th studio album and the documentation of its creation, a-ha have entered a new phase.

The muses of La Musa: Ora The Molecule

Ora The Molecule is the musical moniker of Norwegian-born avant-pop artist . For Schjelderup, life has always been about observation and finding one’s purpose in the community at large. She is the molecule personified: the smallest bit of matter that retains its own identity while being part of something greater. This keen sense of inspection and willingness to surrender to feelings of wide-eyed wonder guided Schjelderup from her childhood to the release of her debut album, Human Safari.
