Drawing from a wide range of influences, including songwriting greats such as NEIL YOUNG, SPARKLEHORSE, FLEETWOOD MAC and TOBBEN & ERO (the Norwegian equivalent of Simon & Garfunkel), Monkeybird serves up an appealing blend of pop, rock, blues, psychedelic rock and jangly lo-fi pop, with a sprinkling of country and folk thrown in for good measure.
The single was recorded and mixed at BRYGGA STUDIO in Trondheim, Norway. Recognized as being one of Norway’s top recording facilities, Brygga Studio has been home to a number of prominent bands, including Norwegian prog-rock masters MOTORPSYCHO, ISRAELVIS, MOUNT WASHINGTON and THE INTERNATIONAL TUSSLER SOCIETY, to mention a few.
Monkeybird is: Dan Slettevolden (singer/songwriter, founder of Polarfox Records) along with Paal André Brekkaas (sound engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist)
