Poetry of Vår is a result of a collaboration between musicians living in 8 different countries, which included Halvard Vebjörnsson (Germany), Morfar (Norway), Rim and Kidedo (France), Void`s Anatomy (Canada), Bosques De Mi Mente (Spain), Hasta Luego Pilar (Denmark), Dylan Waller (USA) and Gargle (Japan).
The album is an experimental piece of music with a cinematic atmosphere. Standing somewhere between post-rock / ambient, listeners of Set Fire to Flames, Eluvium, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mùm may find new tastes in the album when they meet Draff Krimmy’s ambience floating with guitars, accordion and drones.
Thomas Andre (musician)
“Early morning, wintertime. An eerie light brushes away the last shreds of the night. The day to come awaits, numb. It’s that time when everything seems to melt and merge, thoughts, dreams and languages alike. Draff Krimmy’s music is playing. It is mysterious and uncanny. It is this early morning melting of the senses. Echoes of instruments you recognize and the swoosh of others unknown, melodies entwined, evocative, reaching out and meeting on neutral ground. Draff Krimmy is the peaceful coming together of peoples in the Northern lights, speaking in many languages and communicating. It is the poetry of vår.”
Taner Torun (musician / producer)
“I had the same feeling when I listen to my favorite bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor and Low. Poetry of Vår is an epic listening experience to fall, rise and get lost in it.”
Martial Despre (musician)
“Listening to Draff Krimmy’s music means to accept a journey through beauty, melancholy, happiness and poetry. Through the grace of a personal vision of music which contains all the troubles and the beauties of our world. Poetry of vår is not just a musical trip, it’s more than that, it means accepting to face the beauty of musical poetry.”
