On the band’s third album ‘In Velvet’, Nordmann reinvent themselves, causing a profound shift in their distinctive sound. They trade in the rock influences in favour of synths, electronic textures and beats. The new music is more reflective, though without ever losing focus on the instincts.
Producer Jasper Maekelberg (Faces On TV, Bazart, Hypochristmutreefuzz, Warhola, Balthazar...) – who also recorded Nordmann’s debut as an inexperienced producer – undoubtedly plays a big role in this giant musical jigsaw falling into place. To overcome the physical limitations of playing the new music live, Nordmann hired Thijs Troch as new synth player and additional guitarist. In this new constellation, Nordmann is ready to conquer new hearts and territory. ‘In Velvet’ is their first release on renowned indie imprint Unday Records, home to Trixie Whitley, Millionaire, The Bony King of Nowhere and Mauro Pawlowski.
