GÅTE IS BACK WITH THEIR NEW SINGLE "HULDRA" RELEASED IN OCTOBER 2019
For those, who have followed GÅTE since their founding in the year 1999, some of the elements of "Huldra" will sound familiar. After all these years, the unique blend of rock and traditional Norwegian music still sounds as fresh and thrilling as in the early years between 2001 to 2006. Yet this new single sets a darker tone and adds a harder edge to GÅTE's trademark sound.
GÅTE ("Riddle") have now given the creature, “huldra”, musical shape with their new single, followed by an intense and captivating music video. Opening with a hypnotic tribal rhythm driven by percussion and an ominous susurrus of strings, soon the clear bell-like soprano of singer Gunnhild Sundli calls out – searching, beckoning. In short interludes other voices can be heard as from a distance or through a dense fog. Tension rises and the dramatic build-up is suddenly released in an outburst of vocals, electric guitars and drums. The unmistakable sound of the Norwegian fiddle joins this musical telling of a story.
