“We live in Norway. It’s a good place to live when you’re making music,” says Einar Kaupang. The tranquility of your surroundings allows the cleansing of the mind to occur naturally, and this is evident in DIG DEEPER‘s latest record, IN CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME.
With The War on Drugs-esque ambience and eerie strings providing a reflective outlook, the soft, elegant hooks embody Scandinavia and vocals tell tales worthy of being encased in a novel for time. Only six tracks long, but each track acts as a journey into the soundscape of Dig Deeper and explores a wide range of genres; from the country vibes of Don’t Ask Too Much to the psychedelic coating on Sky Brown Sky, the record continues to develop and weave seamlessly from one style to the next.
Although, as mentioned, there are only six tracks, In Central European Time is still a forty minute record; four of the six last for over seven minutes. Don’t let this defer you from investing your time, though; they are moreish tracks giving you time to wander into your own mind and explore what is lurking inside.
