Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. Our plan is to post at least one Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) song each Saturday. Today, the two songs are from Norway.
Sail by Summer refer to themselves as a “melancholic Nordic band.” The title of “Facing Dullness” is consistent with the description, but the melody is not melancholy. Still, we will quote the bio of the duo in Bergen, Norway:
“It rains a lot in Western Scandinavia, where you'll find mountains reflected in fjords and the taste of four seasons embrace you. In this environment you'll find the melancholic Nordic indie band Sail by Summer. Fronted by Norwegian Grammy award winner William Hut with his characteristic voice and his long time Danish collaborator Jens Kristian behind the keys. Together they have created this universe inspired by the nature that surrounds them.”
