SORK

GO TO SORK NEW HOMEPAGE

Skuggsork

SORK is  Pontus Torstensson on drums and samplings, Helena Engarås on bass. Magdalena Ågren – voice, trombone, stylofone and syntesizer.
As a fully charged battery Sork explodes in the summer heat and the corrosive acid flowing out of transistor radios, and stain the white summer clothes. Sork is sometimes restrained and monotonically with insanely distorted bass and beautiful vocal melodies, sometimes exploding postpunk with megaphone vocals, frenetic drums and a mental illness trombone.

SORK has just finished recordings of eight brand new exploding songs.
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Kapitän Platte to release the new album on vinyl and CD in the spring 2014!

Review from:
http://www.vitalweekly.net/
The style of the band is based in post-punk traditions and the band does it in a nice way. The bass is pulsing and the drums steams like a rolling train. The voice of Magdalena and her interactions on the synthesizer, stylophone and trombone take care of the experimental part of the music. (JKH)
