Leif Vollebekk – “Twin Solitude”

Leif Vollebekk’s third full-length record, Twin Solitude, is incredibly easy to listen to. NPR said, referring to the first track, “the song grabs you by the heart and pulls you into its hypnotic whirl of melancholia.” This could not be a more perfect description for the entire album. The lyrics are clearly heartfelt, lying on top of elastic instrumentation full of piano, synthesizer, guitar, rich electric bass, and strings. Twin Solitude is a beautiful, memorable and moving album perfect for listening to all the way through.
