      ”Splashgirl was an exciting discovery and one of Punkt 08´s best shows, ranking as the surprise of the year— and not just at the festival (...) Splashgirl is a group that deserves a wider audience and, if it can get some proper exposure, no doubt will.”

      Second album from youngsters Splashgirl see them re-inventing themselves from a piano trio in the European jazz tradition to a ”band” in a more boundry-less musical landscape some place between ambient, experimental rock, jazz, and contemporary music. It is still improvised acoustic music, but it definetely sounds quite different.

      The music on ”Arbor” takes a more minimalistic and defined collective approach where the use of long, sustained sounds binds together a broad palette of string- and percussion-instruments. The band mentions Eric Satie, Earth, Morton Feldman, and Oren Ambarchi as important references. Repetition and duration play a major role on ”Arbor” as the music unfolds slowly and leaves a lot of room for a focus on details. ”Patience is bliss” states bass player Jo Berger Myhre.

      Splashgirl play improvised music that doesn´t sound improvised. This time they wanted to have a more collective approach to the music, and by improvising they have found sounds and song-ideas that they have developed further during the recording sessions.

      ”Arbor” also features contributions by pedal steel guitarist Anders Hofstad Sørås, and singer/songwriter/soundartist Lasse Passage, two musicians with whom Splashgirl have been working closely with the last couple of years.
