Sun + Skyman

by Pysj

supported by


This is the new PYSJ. It consists of Solveig Sørbø (comp), Saleh Mahfoud, Torgeir Koppang, Leila Matta and Michaela Antalová. Jazz people think our music is indie pop, alternative people think it's ambient folk and rock, world music people think it's jazz and no idea what rock people think. Frankly, we don't care - we just make the best music we can. The two original core tracks feature the microtonal instruments yayli tanbur and qanun along with funky rhodes, impressionistic modal piano, progressive drums, spherical guitar and soaring vocals. They are a product of a long gestation period crystallizing the compositions and some studio magic breathing life into every bit of the sonic landscape.

Soursoil Rec / Pysj Oslo, Norway

PYSJ is a band that loves the simplicity of yellow and a complexity of musical influences. We love pulse and flow and textured sounds that feel like a stream-of-consciousness as much as the minimal and appealingly repetitive
