Press release by Henning Bolte:
•    Dark Star Safari, a newly formed group featuring Jan Bang, Erik Honoré, Eivind Aarset and Samuel Rohrer present its eponymous recording debut, an evocative song~driven album. These songs conjure shadows of memory, clouds of dreaming and silhouettes of foreboding through the album’s layered, many~textured fabrics and Jan Bang’s silken delivery of Erik Honoré’s acute lyrics.
•    Dark Star Safari is the work of four kindred spirits, their open modus operandi, and a remarkably interconnected creative nerve system. Key to their collaboration is an organic freedom that enables the music „to fill itself in“, to be self~actualizing via the musicians as medium. The music of the 10 songs resulted from a two~stage process: an initial phase of free flowing open improvisation, and a subsequent exploratory phase where hidden potentials were discovered and nurtured.
