Needlepoint Formed by guitarist/vocalist Bjørn Klakegg and Nikolai Hængsle (Elephant9, Møster!) around 2010, who share a love for old British rock heroes from the 70s. By 2015, the current lineup was solidified with Olaf Olsen and David Wallumrød, making the band a formidable collection of talent some might deem a Norwegian supergroup.

With the group's maturity has come continued exploration, evinced in a plethora of instruments heard across the last album: harpsichord, violin, flute, a choir and more add layers of sonic beauty to an album already bursting with ideas. Between dreamy vintage keyboards, busy drums and percussion, mind- bending, jazz-tinged guitar work and deft bass lines, Klakegg's soft and melodious voice finds room in the mix, tying the band together with tales from the road between reality and fantasy.
