The German composer Niklas Paschburg takes us on a journey to a place where the sun never shines, into the blue, with his latest album 'Svalbard'. NBHAP editor Liv Toerkell sat down with the artist in the middle of the night to dive beyond the surface of the art. Enjoy the first edition of our new "Late Night Talks" series.
Ahead of the forthcoming release of their debut '925', we met up with Sorry's Asha Lorenz. The band's lead opened up on the random nature of songwriting, how each track on the album is rooted in another emotion and elaborated on the means of painting a picture with music. Well, we did not quite manage to match a colour to the individual songs, but it nevertheless brightened up our understanding of the act.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore LP 'Every Bad', we sat down with Porridge Radio. Lead singer and band founder, Dana Margolin gives us a little insight into the inspirations of the record, existential thoughts and her unique vocal style.
The people behind Norway's Brakkesyke responded to Covid-19's wave of concert cancellations with a 'virtual music festival', with new shows every day. We spoke to them about finding ways to cope with the current industrial crisis.

Last year's sparkling and sprawling All Mirrors marked yet another giant leap for Angel Olsen towards indie stardom. A place where she belongs but that can also come with a very dangerous environment. Turns out: Olsen can teach us all a thing or two about how to ruthlessly reflect. How to take a look in the mirror – and what to make of the many illusions and delusions that come with it.
At first this joint venture by the Austrian-born American electronic producer and the entertaining band leader from James Corden's late night show feels as unlikely as it sounds on paper but creative chemistry follows its own rules. Two years after their joint debut album Mr. Tejada and Mr. Watts are back for more with the grooving follow-up "Don't Let Get You Down". Time for you to get to know these two gentlemen a bit better.
