Fredrik - Trilogi

When Fredrik was still but a fledgling sextet, they recorded and self-released three very limited edition EPs. Now, after the success of their first full-length album, Na Na Ni, they are releasing the EPs as one full-length album, Trilogi. Trilogi is indeed a little darker than its predecessor, but the album is still quietly experimental and full of beautiful, understated drama, much like Na Na Ni. In fact, it's so understated that I think this album will take a little warming up to for many people. It definitely takes multiple listens to fully appreciate the intricate layers that Fredrik is so skilled at crafting.
