“Pond” is the result of a successful session in the Oslo studio AmperTone with sound engineer Johnny Skalleberg. The album was recorded and mixed in the course of a week, and the band describes the process as very inspiring. Ivar Grydeland plays electric guitar, pedal steel and electronics this time. Ingar Zach has expanded his percussion set-up with timpani, and Tonny Kluften’s distinctive bass playing is given more freedom to stretch out than on the band’s previous albums.
Perhaps most striking this time is how clearly the musical personalities of the three different musicians are able to emerge. “Pond” has become a new career highlight from Huntsville. Through four long tracks we encounter a band that is true to its own sound and idiom, but never stands still.
