The band comment: “Parting is a song about starting over. Excitement, anxiety, hope and longing for what is left behind share the emotional space in the song. As with any good adventure, there is a naive positivity about what lies ahead. It’s like the romanticised version of a roadtrip you have in your head, that tends to end up being a more taxing experience then first imagined. Soundwise, the song is a melancholic, yet big and hopeful anthem. The song peaks as electronic pop act Ponette delivers the quirky, but still very impactful last lyrics of the song”.
The Oslo-based hardcore/metal troupe OBERST blend their many influences seamlessly into a unique sound: their huge, warm and atmospheric riffs meet hectic, catchy elements driven by intense and at times manic vocals. At times relatable to Mutoid Man, Red Fang, or Kvelertak, OBERST are fast becoming ones to watch.
Originally formed around the mutual interest in music rather than any particular genre, OBERST later found common ground in bands like Mastodon, Baroness, Converge and Cult of Luna. The release of their self-titled debut EP was met with critical acclaim and praised locally as "some of the best metal produced in Norway for a long time".
Following the success of their EP the band have signed with Indie Recordings for their anticipated debut full-length - released 17th January. They've already caught the attention internationally from the likes of Metal Hammer, Total Guitar, and Metal Injection, all taken by the band's infectious attitude.
