Orions Belte, the outfit of Øyvind Blomstrøm, Chris Holm and Kim Åge Furuhaug, are gearing up to release their new album Villa Amorini. The Norwegian trio named the album after a Bergen restaurant which was a vibrant place for live music and long nights in the 90’s and belonged to Holm’s family. Serving as “a homage to an era of loud music, club nights, ugly shirts and long afterparties”, as the band puts, Villa Amorini, unlike their previous record, “might sound more like big city night life and chaotic afterparties.”
Villa Amorini will be released on April 4th through Jansen Records and Orions Belte have recently shared a slick, expansive and propulsive new single called ‘Lotus’. It comes with a fitting video filmed by Nikolai Grasaasen up on a mountain top in Fresvik called Mulakamben. Take a look.
