It’s hard to picture anything this warm and gentle to come out of a harsh and cold country like Norway, but the boys and girls (there’s seven of them in the band) that make up Youth Pictures Of Florence Henderson get to call Oslo home. And it’s there that they write songs that are nothing short of epic.

With the shortest song clocking in at just under five minutes, this band likes things long… as you can probably already tell just from looking at their band name and the album title. The four songs on this EP all consist of layered guitars, horns, shifting rhythms and hazy vocals that can turn into screams that all shift in and out of focus as the song unfolds itself.

The best description I can come up with is a mix of Explosions In The Sky and Sigur Ros with comprehensible vocals.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
