Norwegian five piece Einar Stray Orchestra perform their brand new song 'Pocket Full Of Holes', taken from their newly released album 'Politricks' out now on Berlin's Sinnbus Records. Here they are live in Germany.
Einar Stray Orchestra, formerly known as just Einar Stray after the pianist and vocalist, played the song at the annual Neujahrkonzert 2014 at Volksbuhne in Berlin; in English, Berlin's New Year's concert. Performing before a seated, mesmerised audience, 'Pocket Full Of Holes' was another incredible example of their unique indie pop, with a lively violin intro, hushed resonant vocals with beautiful harmonies and inventive lyrics. Despite the upbeat rhythm and warm vibe, the band maintained their characteristically dark uncurrent.
Along with Stray, the band (who are all co-vocalists) are cellist Ofelia Østrem Ossum, bassist Simen Aasen, drummer Lars Fremmerlid and violinst Åsa Ree. 'Politricks' marks the band's second album release, following 2011's debut 'Chiaroscuro' under their previous moniker. They received worldwide acclaim and made plenty of festival appearances, but this year has seen them on the road all around Europe, with several more dates still to come in Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. The band have also released a video for the new album's title track.
