Hotly tipped alternative electronic singer/songwriter, Torgny, marks his return with a new EP, the first of a three part EP series titled ‘Cut & Run’ due this year.
Oslo native Torgny’s previous album ‘Oil Panic’ drew critical acclaim and accolades, described by The Line of Best Fit as “another fine example of the sheer magnitude of talent that’s emerging from Norway right now.”
All of three tracks on the EP tell stories about characters in a state of urgency – death, longing and heartbreak being key themes running through the EP. ‘Cut & Run’ is a phrase that originated in the 1700s and alludes to cutting loose a ship’s anchor and sailing away quickly from an urgent situation,” explains Torgny. “And I think the urge to get out or to be somewhere else can be felt in all of these songs.”
‘All The Scars’ is the first single from the EP and is an energetic, but also melancholic tune. The video for ‘All The Scars’ is based on the autobiographical film “La Pudeur Ou L’Impudeur” by French writer Hervé Guibert who documented the final year of his life and battle with AIDS. Guibert died 27 December, 1991.
The visual identity of ‘CUT & RUN’ is a collaboration with Austrian-Norwegian artist and photographer Willibald Storn.
