Fervent Mind Tranquilize cover
Karisma Records have chosen to start the year by revealing details of “Tranquilize” the upcoming debut album from Experimental Rockers Fervent Mind, as well as giving fans an insight into this up and coming Norwegian by releasing a single from the album.

The single, for the track “Fervent”, which includes cover art by Yrjan Sundfør Rodrigues and design by Hallvard Surlien, can be streamed below.

Fervent Mind vocalist and composer Live Sollid Schulerud had this to say about the track:
“"Fervent" is a song about having lost your belief in people and in love, and having lived a life that was totally different from what you really wanted it to be. You have kind of closed the door to the life you wished for because you thought you didn’t have the guts to take the risk. But the door is still there in the back of your mind, and you suddenly feel an urge to open it and get away from the dull and comfortable”.

Along with Live Sollid, who formed Fervent Mind in 2014, the band’s lineup includes Simen Skrebergene on electric guitar, Martin Sandvik Gjerde on keyboards, Martin Skrebergene on electric bass, and Henrik Håland on drums. Together they have become known for their intense and energetic live performances and a captivating and progressive soundscape that merges experimental rock with elements from post rock and metal as well as dream pop, trip hop and contemporary jazz.
