about

It has now been two years since Nordvis released Grifts outstanding debut album, "Syner". Since then, the bands mastermind Erik Gärdefors has released a split with Drudkh, and a cassette of acoustic songs recorded live in the forest.

The new album, "Arvet" (“The Heritage”) continues where "Syner" left off. Once again, Erik has struggled with the endless big questions that sensitive people have always struggled with and have tried to express. From the small and seemingly insignificant in every human being, to something that always pulsates and becomes meaningful in some way; beyond the meadows and the forests.
The heritage we carry within us is something we never can escape from. An inheritance is something that characterizes every individual in often paradoxical ways. It may be a social heritage, a biological heritage, a religious heritage, etc. With this album Grift wants to illuminate the always ongoing journey from the small safe place in each mans heart to the great unforeseen life. We often think that everything is going to shape from scratch to something unique. But sooner or later we understand our vulnerabilities and falls back to what we have inherited since we were innocent children.

The album was written and recorded entirely by Erik in his studio, Eremitaget Liesmia. In addition to the usual instruments, Erik has also chosen to include the old Swedish instrument, Psalmodikon, which was used mostly during the 19th century in poor Swedish congregations. Erik has also recorded nature sounds from the forests around where he lives. A tawny owls howling, the scream of a fox, and other unspecific sounds contribute to build up the right kind of atmosphere. Three guests also contribute with their characteristic voices. Ludvig from Forndom, Martin from Mosaic, and Ela from Noêta & Undantagsfolk. To illustrate the ideas behind the song “Den stora tystnaden” ("The Great Silence") a music video has been filmed. The video follows the red thread from the former music video “Svältorna” produced in 2015.
