The Deer Tracks – Undersvik, released December 23

thedeertracks-photo-salomonpaulo-web

The Deer Tracks are back after three years of silence with the new album Undersvik.
After the bands constantly touring of the world for several years, they ended up in a mental and spiritual dead end. The interruption of touring was vital and the band sought out an abandon school in the small village Undersvik, Sweden. Over a 10 days period, with outside world switched off, they just let the stillness and their own spirit color the lyrics and their sound. Undersvik is as much a result of the eternal insomnia of touring, as the tranquility and beauty of nature.

And boy oh boy does it resonate.”
