One of the most acclaimed Nordic roots band of their generation, SVER brings Scandinavian fiddle and folk traditions together with explosive force, a new kind of epic Nordic folk music! Ranging from dreamy melodies to swinging, pounding, sweaty rhythms, all fueled by a madcap sense of humor–as shown in the group’s of official music videos, which mix together 80s exercise videos and Nordic ski dancing footage. But these five musicians are very serious about the traditions from which they come. On FRYD (“Joy”), the long awaited follow up to two previous critically acclaimed albums, SVER bring an eclectic mix of Nordic roots, from breathtaking Hallings dances, to thrilling Reinlanders and “false waltzes.” They inject a shot of adrenalin into the old melodies through the sheer force of the performance and arrangements, so much so that they’re often described as “sounding electric without electricity.”

SVER is:
Olav Luksengård Mjelva, fiddle and hardangerfiddle
Anders Hall, fiddle and viola
Leif Ingvar Ranøien, diatonic accordion
Adam Johansson, guitar
Jens Linell, drums and percussion
