Sturle Dagsland Short Info

"Indescribable!" - Vice

"Enchanted!" - The Needle Drop

"An adventurous spirit, a unique sound and an irrefutable intensity... The music has a primitive and ethereal feeling. It's dark, disruptive, astonishing and groundbreaking...They cannot be categorized, because they sound like nothing that already exists." - The Wall.

Sturle Dagsland is a young and highly acclaimed musical outfit from Norway. They alternate at playing on an array of instruments and electronics, harmonically creating an expressive-progressive ever-changing soundscape dominated by Sturle's unrestrained innovative vocals ranging from ravening ferocious screams to virtuous angelic chanting. His distinctive voice, large vocal range, multilingual lyrics and unique approach to songwriting and composition won him the "Emerging Artist" award in Copenhagen, and they have toured all across the world ever since.

Among recent and current tour lists covering both the European, Russian, Greenlandic and North American continent include festivals such as Secret Solstice, Fusion Festival, Sled Island, Tallinn Music Week, Colisium Music Week, Barcelona Open Air,
Deezer Monkey Week, Fiesta Del Pilar, H2Ö, Barents Spektakel, Live At Heart 2015, Oslo Jazz Festival, Kaliningrad Sound Around Festival, Trondheim Calling, Newman, Supernormal, ++

Between the busy tour schedules of the past years Sturle Dagsland has been constantly working on recording music, which project has taken them to high mountain tops in Norway, abandoned industrial areas in Russia, legendary sovjet Marine ships in Eastern-
Europe, concentration camps in Germany, A lighthouse in the North-Sea, and singing with wolves on dogsledding tours in the outbacks of Greenland.

The first glimps of the result of years of recording "Guaifing" was released earlier this year – while the Sturle Dagsland EP will be unveiled in late 2016 followed by a large World Tour. The EP will be extremely diverse,dynamic and an expressive work of art.
Sturle's live reputation of combing a wild mixture of genres will be revealed exhibiting everything from short aggressive Samiinspired songs to electronic fantasies.

"Sturle Dagsland does not leave anyone feel indifferent, turning their concerts into a wild brutal apocalypse" - Asociación Cultural Somos Arte

"This pixie-like Norwegian man unleashed an extremely potent racket. Sounding quite unlike anything i've heard before. Sturle shrieks and emotes, his clever fingers flickering like campfire over a broken accordion, while metal scapings occasional blasts of acoustic guitar and sudden lurching silences switch and coagulate behind him. Wonderfully, it seems to divide the crowd completely down the middle. But watching these two inscutable fair folk playing the wooden beamed main stage while the sun beats down. I can't help but feel that something very special indeed is occurring" - The Quietus

"It's rare to find a song that sounds so different, so unusual and so appealing all at once. It occurred to me at one point that this might be what poking your head into an alien nightclub sounds like." - anewbandaday.com
