1. Death of a King
2. Ad Interim (Minuet in G Major)



— Following the release of their compilation album Selected Early Works (Blue Spiral Records, 2019), this January will see the release of a limited edition maxi-single. Highlighting their unmistakable musical tone-language, the single will hold two pieces of Western art music penned by the Swedish brothers, intimately rendered by renowned string ensemble Malva Quartet [Malvakvartetten]. The title track, bearing clear marks of Romanticism and the likes of past masters such as Mussorgsky and Elgar, has the bow-strokes cry out in matters of loss and mourning, albeit with an insinuation of acceptance and gratitude. The accompanying track, Ad Interim, is a traditionally composed minuet, offering a calm backdrop for reflections while concurrently acting as appropriate aftermath for the drama of the title track.
