about

For the new album “A Dream I Used to Remember”, released on Loyal Label, the two moved even further away from their original fascination with the beeps and bleeps of electronic music to have more of a “full band” type approach. Leaning more towards an experimental pop sound of sorts, they spent countless hours in 2007 and 2008 constructing ten memorable themes - experimenting with recording techniques and orchestrations, making use of guitars, upright bass, old school keyboards and electronics, banjos, and a choir. The result is their most thematically focused album to date where each songs complements and leads to the next and the whole record plays down like a story. It is also the first time Opsvik & Jennings release their album on vinyl (LP), in addition to CD and downloads.
