Some say it’s the rest of us it’s the rest of us who feel I saved a seat for you made a meal for two my friend It’s been a while since I’ve heard from myself spent my days needing nobody else But it isn’t the same without the power nothing feels the same without the power Give back to the mothers who stayed through hell for you like a flower Some say it’s the rest of us that it is all the rest of us who will pay It’s been a while since I’ve heard from myself spent my days needing nobody else But it isn’t the same without the power nothing feels the same without the power Hear us we need some jaws to drop Some say I sell my tears to God Who pays for mother earths farewell? (Get back, now is the time to tell) Drench us with better playfulness Give us a taste of gratefulness Some say we need a light into the night into the night into the night we need a light

Chicken dances in the fall out in the air with all the eagles eagles read me those english books they feel me they find me they find me I’m forced not to drive all the senseless lies and all of the grime and pollution out in the future fields It’s a blue blue moon you and I have we have no due you and I we have a due get the love out in the air forget your pack and sail away I wouldn't think If I were you I wouldn’t scream if I were you Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Out in the Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Out in the Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide (All the way) Out in the air Forget your pack and sail away I wouldn’t think if I were you I wouldn’t scream if I were you Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Feel the truth slide Away and out of you

Many people say I dream That we dream for the false kind who sleeps a lot For the bravery of an honest guy in love What to write a song about? Is it home? Is it the fullness? Not the feeling of being scared and being sore And I role my face in the cold sand This goes out to the lonely brides Kisses last forever so take your time It is long it is late it is falling away but sometimes it’s ok to delay Cause this surely is mine And it surely is yours We will die in the end Don’t let the uncle change your mind (your mind) Many people say we dream For the kind and for the lucky But I will surely, surely be the same that you loved Who is the hero amongst us? I think it’s me, oh it’s you or my mail man He will fail, you will fail, I will fail, we will fail I will fail Save all our sore souls Save all our Save all of our souls Save all of our souls (save) Could I get it right? Did I get it right? Did I get it right this time?

about

Konradsen, the duo of vocalist and pianist Jenny Marie Sabel and multi-instrumentalist Eirik Vildgren, trace their roots to the far north of Norway, where the black night of winter is backlit by the neon glow of the Northern Lights. It’s a fitting metaphor for the music the pair crafts – tradition meets innovation, while the natural world glimmers overhead.

Inspired by the folksongs and hymns Sabel sang with her family as a child, and the modern pop music she and Vildgren listen to as adults, Konradsen weaves Sabel’s soulful vocals with field recordings, samples and ambient foley. These voices of past and present dance over minimalist piano, atmospheric electronics, programmed beats and organic horns, forming a sonic tapestry that foregrounds the people close to Konradsen.

Konradsen’s newest offering, an EP titled Rodeo No. 5, was created as an extension of their recent debut album, Saints and Sebastian Stories. “While last year’s album was crafted meticulously, this EP is focused on fleeting, immediate moments — trying to capture the raw fragments that drift by in everyday life,” they explain. “It’s an ode to the small choices we make everyday.”

Just as on Saints and Sebastian Stories, Konradsen assembles friends to contribute their voices, as heard on the EP’s opening track “Give It Back To The Feelings,” where a chorus joins Sabel on the refrain: “Give back to the mothers who / stayed through hell for you / like a flower.”

The EP’s title track also includes voices of their community; sample-based and subtly beat-driven, they explain “Rodeo No. 5” is meant to feel open and loose, “something in between a song and an interlude.” Repeating small phrases like “No it isn’t the same,” that harken back to their previous material, with disparate layers that continuously ebb and flow, it suggests that Konradsen’s songs are akin to stories — self-referential, passed down, told and re-told again.
