Sondre Lerche is haunted by the forces of darkness and finds an impressive career peak.
“Avatars of Love”
“The Light / You Need / Exists” is the fiery songwriter Helge Torvunds in his most philosophical form.
Instagram users’ love of sharing gave the poem small shots of hope worthy of eternal life.
Sondre Lerche’s new album is the opposite of Torvund’s pressed optical fountains. Pity is the same. sound controls Little Different. The setting is emotionally gray.
