Pay money to my pain!! We have to share this amazing 10/10 review we got from Marunouchi Muzik Magazine in Japan! Plus: exclusive interview for the japanese audience (in english).

Sometimes, google translate produces some wonderful, poetic translations. Here is one (from japanese to english):

"The melting of time that the collision of the 20th century and the 21st century produces melts the listener 's heart, sometimes changing everyday, sometimes gorgeously, sometimes romantically. "

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!

We’re back after a hazardious trip over the mountains that so brutally (and beautifully) separate us from Oslo. Thank you so much to by:Larm for a fantastic festival, BD57 for having us acoustic (lets do this again some time) and last, but not least: Apollon Records for letting us play at their showcase on saturday. It was nerve-wrecking, great fun and merciless cold all the way. We felt like Scott going over, but ended up triumphing like Amundsen!

New single: Madeleine Crumbles

Today we bring you the most exalted of news: The first single from our fourth studio album has finally been released. Madeleine Crumbles is a five minute exploration of symphonic pop melancholia, touching some musical realms we haven’t really ventured into before. That’s where we’re always most comfortable – somewhere we’ve haven’t been before. You can find the song on Spotify or any kind of service you may find preferrable. The song features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift) on guest vocals, plus a host of other guest musicians, and has been mixed by Yngve Sætre. Lyrics here.


Gig alert: Trondheim, Bergen, Oslo!

We’ll be heading back on the road for a few shows, to showcase the new ensemble and glimpses of our new material. Hope you’ll find your way to one of them.


Gig alert: Hulen, Bergen – April 30th!

You asked for it, you got it. We’re proud to announce the first gig with our new line-up.

As well as being the maiden journey for four new faces, you can get a first taste of the much-awaited follow-up to Twilight Cinema. We’re extremely excited to get back on stage again.

Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics!

Some of you may have noticed that this website has gotten a bit of a new look lately.

It is very much a work in progress, and the makeover is nowhere near complete. But do note that we’ve finally gotten around to publishing all the official Major Parkinson lyrics.

A lot of you have been asking us about releasing these things, and while we’ve been amused by all the wrong lyrics that have been put out on the internet over the years, we kind of figured we had to set the record straight. We know it’s kind of hard to decipher what we’re saying at times.

So, go on, enjoy yourself, now there’s no excuse for singing the wrong lyrics.
