Three years following the release of their debut full-length album “Skarntyde”, Norwegian post-rock collective Spurv return with their awe-inspiring second studio offering “Myra”.
Recorded at Malabar studio in Oslo by Martin Bowitz (Cold Mailman) in collaboration with Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh), mixed by Bowitz and Jørgen Smådal Larsen, and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna), “Myra” features contributions from Kari Rønnekleiv, Moe’s Ole-Henrik Moe and Ulver’s Tore Ylvisaker/Ole Aleksander Halstensgård, who have helped Spurv piece together a monumental and emotionally intense album replete with enigmatic ambiences, noisy drones and captivating melodies.

“The album was written in the years that have passed since Skarntyde and recorded in the first weeks of 2017.” Says Spurv about this new effort. “With Skarntyde, we felt that we had come as far as we could, almost on our own, and with Myra we have taken a huge step, if not forward, then deeper, towards what we want Spurv to be. Especially Ole-Henrik Moe and Kari Rønnekleiv have come with invaluable contributions that fill out and bind together the album, while Tore Ylvisaker and Ole Aleksander Halstensgård from Ulver have filled in details that draw out harmonies that we did not know were to be found in our own music.”
