The time has finally come for Valiant Sounds‘ second official release!

Our very first release was Paul Bernard‘s album “Sånne dager“.

This time it is Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra‘s debut single “Queen of the doorway”!

Release date: December 7th, 2012

The single will be available @ any online music store (Spotify, Itunes, Wimp, Platekompaniet, Amazon & more)

Drawing inspiration from classic pop music, Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra make their debut with a sunny, sprightly and perky number entitled “Queen of The Doorway”. Steeped in harmonies and with a predominantly acoustic backing, the single is heavily influenced by things as far apart as West Coast Pop and acoustic folk music. This is the first in a string of planned releases on Valiant Sounds for Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra.
 
 
Øyvind Berge: vocals, guitar, keyboards
Paul Bernard: drums, percussion,  bass, additional guitar
 
Written by: Øyvind Berge

What do YOU know about indie music online?

The new Paul Bernard album is on its way and need promotion!

Our first step is to “headhunt” Paul Bernard’s audience. We’re from a small country called Norway (that’s 5 millions inhabitants for you) and let’s just say the music scene is not bigger. It’s especially hard if you don’t fit in the commercial settings.

So we’re going to push the album to all the online magazines, blogs, websites, magazines, radios, web radios, whatever… that has an interest for indie music, especially indie/alternative hip hop. Our main focus will be the USA and Canada, but anywhere else is just as good!

About the album:

After years of producing, collaborations and several free album releases, the alternative hip hop artist/producer Paul Bernard is finally ready with his first official full length album, named «Sånne dager».

The album is pushing the limits of the hip hop genre, taking the energy and elements of rock and cross it with melodic themes and rap.

With a few exceptions, the music and the lyrics are written and performed by the artist himself.

“Sånne dager” is the very first release on the Valiant Sounds label, an indie label and musical collective mainly focusing on indie pop. Despite the Norwegian title the album is in English.

The album will only be available as a digital release.

The income of the 160 first units sold will be donated to Global Orphanage Foundation

So if YOU know about sites and/or magazines that fit the earlier descriptions, please leave a comment or send us a message!

Thank you

Online indie music…???
