With a debut EP in the bag and a Buyers Club gig upcoming, Getintothis‘ David Hall checks in on the former Wave Machines man.
Norwegian vibraphonist and Liverpool-based producer Vidar Norheim now presents his debut solo material, in the shape of a new EP – recorded with support from Merseyside Arts Foundation – and a live night out.
The drummer with now-defunct art-pop outfit Wave Machines now prepares to deliver an EP full of slick atmospherics and softly-sung, unsurprisingly percussive electronica.
Norheim debuts EP Blind Carbon Copy, with input from producer Dave Berger, who has previously worked in the studio with Outfit. Bassist of Liverpool indie favourites The Wombats Tord Øverland Knudsen also takes up production duties on Blind Carbon Copy.
Catering equally to fans of The Postal Service‘s heart-on-sleeve lyricism and Jamie XX‘s hushed, bedroom aesthetic, Norheim‘s music will receive a live outing in celebration of the five-track EP’s release.
The EP sees a launch gig at the Buyers Club on Thursday, August 25, with David O’Dowda and Lo-Five taking up support slots on the bill.
Vidar Norheim plays Buyers Club on Thursday, August 25. Blind Carbon Copy is released this autumn.
