Music news

Discover the premiere on WECB France of the video for “Bastards”, a beautiful blues track from Bjørn Berge’s new album.

The WECB France editorial team invites you to discover the clip for “Bastards”, a new title from Bjørn Berge. Directed by Thomas Mortveit (Shady Shades), the clip is available via the player below:

This title is present in SteelFinger Slim, the bluesman’s new album, released on January 26. “I recorded the album in one day last summer. Most of the tracks were recorded in live conditions. I wanted it to be as dynamic and spontaneous as possible, like at a concert. »

There are also two covers of classics: “Black Night” by Deep Purple and “Get It On” by T. Rex. They move from a full band setup to simple guitar-vocal arrangements. “I cover pieces that I already love and I always test them in front of an audience, live” explain Bjørn Berge. “I pay particular attention to the fact that they have not been repeated too many times. These titles must have easily recognizable characteristics. Then, I take liberties with the arrangements, without distorting the identity of the piece. »
