Gentle and ruminative what's here from the Liv Andrea Hauge Trio has lots of appeal - Hauge (b.1995) is Oslo-based, originally from Nordland, and is with bassist Georgia Wartel Collins and drummer August Glännestrand. Tracks have Norwegian titles, their English equivalents mean things like 'Spring' ('Vår' ) and certainly while there is a sense of renewal at times the bittersweet longing in the melodies is the one thing all the tracks have in common to a degree. It's quite a narrow focus, most of the tunes land in the same sort of terrain - a little 1970s Keith Jarrett-like certainly and a charming highly melodic sound that is definitely worth your time. 'Gullregn' is in the pick, a track that we have added to our current top tunes Spotify playlist which you can access here.
