– You hold the levers and when a screw loosens and a nut disappears into the air then another holds on and gets everything on rails again before a new nut loosens and you spin around but you move on before a new screw loosens .... etc (Fan 24. after listening to our upcoming music)
Neither Magnus Tenge nor Tellef Øgrim had written so many tunes before as after they started playing together in The Leif. Tunes tend to queue up. The duo has no written rules about which tunes to chose, but listeners of their first album (of 2018), and this EP, will hear that the duo leans towards melody, a type of "jammy" roots-oriented jazz and a certain pastoral atmosphere. Additionally, a bit of post-1970 nostalgia can be heard in several of the tunes. While their debut album was strictly a duo thing, without contributions from additional recordings, Øgrim and Tenge this time chose to team up with Per Oddvar Johansen, a drummer well known for his sense of sound, and not least his adaptable but still highly personal musicianship.
