Bernhoft & The Fashion Bruises

The phenomenon Jarle Bernhoft is back with a new album and with his regular band, The Fashion Bruises

Concert start: 22:00 Single ticket price: NOK 490

Bernhoft undoubtedly has the ability to excite the public, which we experienced most recently in 2014 when he last visited the Kongsberg Jazz Festival in front of a packed audience at Kirketorget. If Bernhoft has a program statement, it is that he wants to make people dance and think at the same time. This also applies to the highest extent to the album "Humanoid", which was released in August 2018 together with his permanent band.

With The Fashion Bruises I have found a joy in playing that is perversely strong, I look forward to touring like a teenager. I am completely convinced that it is the best band I have ever been in, and better than most bands you will see this year, says Bernhoft himself. 
He goes on to say that he is looking forward to playing the songs live for the public, and that the theme of "Humanoid" alternates between his optimistic and disillusioned view of the world. 
The record has been shaped by the upheavals in the world we live in, where things like the environmental crisis and refugee problems create ever greater contradictions between people. The new album consists of songs that are more up-beat than previous material, and have hints of pure rock, without Jarle wanting to label it "retro". 

I have turned 42, and am analyzing all my taste choices. Except when I'm making songs, mind you. It is my free space, where I let loose. Although the album is decidedly rockier than before, it also contains elements that are recognizable from my other solo albums.
