FAULK [fÉ”:k] is from Østfold/ Viken, Norway. They present catchy melodies in a big rock music soundscape. The mix with folk music makes the sound unique. The lyrics about lived life give you words to relate to.
Faulk records the album “Men” in Norwegian language fall 2023. They are planning a rebirth of the project and a coming tour. Stay tuned.
Faulk released their first English album «Men» in September 20th 2020, with a pre listen event the 19th. The album has punch and power, and a big dose of black humor, as the guys share their feelings about how it is to be a male “or human“ in today’s society.
Vocalist Per-Øivind Johannessen (PØJ) writes all lyrics and vocal melodies. The band all together, Michael Krumins (guitar), Kristian Torp (bass) and Lars Erik Asp (drums), create the music. Michael and Kristian are main composers and arrangers. On «Men» Anders Ådin is hired to play Hurdy Gurdy. The album is recorded at FMV studio in the Old Town of Fredrikstad, Norway, with the well known Kyrre Fritzner as contributor to the sound, mix and master.
The concept album «Men» takes you through a 12 song long journey that starts and ends with a longing for unity, respect and love. Through the album you will meet a frustrated man searching for goals and meaning. He sees the importance of being present and alive, but struggles with mindlessness. Relationships are difficult. Through the phoenix experience he finally finds himself in peaceful ashes. He raises again, and understands that death and rebirth is a cycle that repeats itself thorough life. Will it be lessons learned and a fresh start – or history repeating?
«Faulk – Men» is released digitally on all platforms.
The album is also be distributed physically through an art book «Faulk – Men»; a double page for each song. A painting by PØJ, photographed in Norwegian nature, frames the lyrics. The book also contain facts about the album making, band photos, contributing musicians etc.
Faulk was, in the early try out, on UrTur Spring/2016 tour in Østfold Norway. This was supported by Østfold County and host communes. They have played live on «Glommafestivalen» in Fredrikstad and other venues in southern Norway.* Due to Corona, the band has slumbered in to a pause. But they will rise again – with the re- release of the album in Norwegian language.
