Norwegian iconic octet Jaga Jazzist are back with a new album following 2015’s Starfire. Entitled Pyramid, the new album, unlike the previous one, came to life in just two weeks in a woodland studio in Sweden where they secluded themselves working 12-hour days. “The most important thing is that we didn’t want to over-analyze every musical idea”, explained co-founder and drummer Martin Horntveth. “We wanted to follow the first and original idea and keep the freshness.” Pyramid is also their first self-produced album, which was “hard but felt natural”, as Martin said, “as five of us are producers and make records for a living. The result is an album that feels more collaborative than ever.”
The album arrives on April 24th through Brainfeeder but we can already hear the first sterling taste of it in the form of brand new single ‘Spiral Era’.
