Bristol Songs is a Sarpsborg, Norway-based band playing Nordic melancholic music.
We have been told that given some patience, our songs have a calming effect. This makes us happy, as the goal with our music is to make you relax. Give you a few moments away from your daily routines. Our musical expression has been described as "a warm fire in a winter storm" or "a mid-summernight's soothing blue shadows".
The low-tempered, soft sound emphasized by the down-stripped and minimalistic production leaves a genuine impression. An impression of honesty, warmth and nearness. Genrewise, we have been told it's difficult to place us as other than "soft indie-ballad-rock".
That is how the meaning of the band name also works as an underlining of our songs' peculiarity. Bristol means "the place by the bridge" in ancient English. Bridges, being a frequently used metaphor in poetry, therefore intrigued us to think of passageways and connections. We hope our music will work as a path into our stories, the stories which we want to share with you all.
