Like an amoeba, Signe Emmeluth's band is constantly changing, from complex compositional parts to calm sound surfaces, from intensively improvised polyrhythmic chaos to collective breathing. Of their second release Chimaera (Øra Fonogram), Phil Freeman of Stereogum writes:
"They’re all young players, and this is powerful, pounding music as fierce as any free jazz from the ’90s. At the same time, though, they can slow down and create moments of near-silent tenderness and sonic exploration. On “Lyons,” Emmeluth’s blowing is shrill and squealing, as unrestrained and forceful as Charles Gayle. Balvig pounds the piano like a cross between Cecil Taylor and Don Pullen, letting loose thunderous rumbles and high-speed runs. Bjorå’s guitar has the sting of Sonny Sharrock, and Mofjell’s drumming is neck-breaking, his solo like an attempt to hit everything within reach at least twice, as fast as possible."

NOWHERE STREET is a concert series curated by music journalist and programmer Peter Margasak.
