ENGAGING AND INSPIRING JAZZ-POP THAT ENWARPS
"A classic Nordic jazz sound with pop tones of remarkable taste and quality that the creative and strong quartet manages through an original, delicate, deep and highly suggestive repertoire, which
now and again leaves room for high quality improvisational moments."
(concert review Südtirol Jazz Festival 2018: Jazzitalia.net)

(Anna ran Hansen, Water Boogie System)
Anna Lund: drums
(Mariam the Believer, Marilyn Mazur)
Donovan von Martens: bass

" The listener is stimulated by unpredictable contrasts, that exquisite
commutes to effective forms. In its best moments, it emits a magical shimmer.
(concert review Nefertiti 2019: Mats Hallberg, Kulturbloggen/ Orkesterjournalen)
The music occupies the space in the magical border where innovation and imagination meet harmonics and voice. The commonality and humanity expressed in the lyrics are surrounded by a deep and delicate tonal world.
The group has played and toured around the Nordic countries, France, Italy and Germany and will follow up their acclaimed debut album The Park with a second album, to be released 2020 on Havtorn Records.
