12" black vinyl, hand numbered, edition of 500
Label: Negativ Psykologi Records
Copenhagen based TVIVLER (ex- Lack, Children Of Fall, Obstacles) are about to drop their debut full length EGO on their own Negativ Psykologi Records. The album is the sequel to a trilogy of 7” EPs named Negativ Psykologi #1-3 and will be released April 3rd 2020. North American orders will ship May 1st 2020.
EGO is an album of courage and defiance. It is an album about relations and relations to self, about knots and inner monstrosities. It is songs in the neoliberal Copenhagen, songs from late modern life, songs about the insides of capitalism, about keeping up without holding on. It is an album of songs about reclaiming life from hopelessness. About wanting and committing to what is important.
Tvivler is Morten Ogstrup Nielsen (bass), Thomas Feltheim (guitar), Morten Clausen (drums) and Thomas Burø (vocals).
