Nora is originally from Oslo before moving to Los Angeles to meet her estranged Father and meeting the rest of the band (Sju, a Slovakian hat maker and Jan, a German touring synth player). After being inspired by each other’s work they started making music together and relocated to a small village in Spain’s Andalusian mountains in hope of finding the silence and peace necessary to make music.
“I found myself trapped in an obsessive entrepreneurial networking routine because of the financial pressure due to high living cost in the city” says Nora, “I noticed a dangerous numbness occurring in myself seeing hundreds of homeless people, I was suppressing my feeling of empathy to keep going, I felt a need to remove myself from the city because of my weakness to distraction.”
“I wanted to experience life without parking tickets, concrete, noise, pollution, traffic, gang affiliation and the inescapable focus on the money. I also had good memories of living in a
Spanish village as a child and hoped that returning to that would help me reconnect with myself and gain perspective.”
Ora is a personified molecule, an identity within something else.
