Fire!: She Sleeps, She Sleeps (Rune Grammofon)

Label: Rune Grammofon    
Released in: Norway    


"Fire! is a Swedish trio comprising Mats Gustafsson (The Thing), Johan Berthling (Tape), and Andreas Werliin (Wildbirds and Peacedrums), which came together with the idea of a fresh approach to improvised music drawing upon a number of influences from free jazz, psychedelic rock, and noise. Fire! is also these musicians' vehicle for rekindling their instrumental skills, playing outside their comfort zones, and collaborating with such prestigious guests such as Jim O'Rourke (Unreleased? and Oren Ambarchi (In The Mouth - A Hand. A parallel but no less powerful project is their gargantuan Fire! Orchestra, previously a 30-piece behemoth (now scaled down to a mere 18 piece) of a band that convened for the first time in January 2012 for a memorable concert.

She Sleeps, She Sleeps, the trio's fifth album, is an intriguing cocktail of dark, brooding, hypnotic slowcore jazz. After providing live music for the long-running play Det flygande barnet at the Orionteatern in Stockholm in February and March 2015, Fire! were strongly inspired to return to the theater's amazing large industrial hall and set up the necessary studio equipment. As Gustafsson explains, "After two years of extreme activities with the Fire! Orchestra we felt an urge to record in a studio setting and to strip everything down; fewer instruments, acoustic instruments, down to the roots of it all -- raw, inyrface, beautiful. And with two amazing guests adding layers of poetic beauty: Oren Ambarchi on guitar and Leo Svensson on cello, She Sleeps, She Sleeps is where we are right now -- no return!"-Runn Grammofon

Also available on vinyl LP.
