Which Sondre Lerche is Most Your Cup of Tea?

Published by at 10:55 pm under MP3's


I have always been a big fan of Norwegian artist Sondre Lerche. Many of his lo-fi/pop songs have catchy melodies that coincide wonderfully with his soothing voice. Sondre has been playing guitar since a young boy, and his music started being acknowledged while still in his teens. Sondre’s first two album’s, Faces Down and Two Way Monologue, turned many listeners into loyal fans. Having been born in the 80’s, Sondre’s music takes on a different sound than most other artists his age. He has a 60’s feel about him, that has a very mellow folk/pop foundation.

His newer album release, Duper Sessions, shows another side of Sondre. The album shows Sondre’s versatility, as it’s foundation is jazz. Truthfully, I like his older albums better. I’m not big into jazz at this point in my life, and the album has only grown onto me slightly after listening several times around. I think it’s possibly more me than him. Some people love the album, while others are on the same page as me. Again, I don’t think it’s bad; I just prefer his first two albums. Just last week, Sondre released a new single entitled, Phantom Punch, which is even further away from what his music used to sound like.

Which do you like best? His earlier works, his jazz, or his new single?

    I like it all!! Though I feel TWM did a good job of bringing much of that together. Thanks for (I Wanna) Call It Love – really cool.

    Actually, I have to say I really love his earlier pieces of work. I’m not a huge fan of jazz (despite playing in my schools jazz band) so Duper Sessions wasn’t one of my favorites. I got the whole cd of Phantom Punch a couple weeks ago and find it very much to my liking. Many of the songs are really creative, yet bring on bits and pieces of his old style.

    I love all of his works, because I can say to myself “I’d like something calm and joyful” and put on Modern Nature, while at the same time I’d like something upbeat and put on She’s Fantastic. I love how he’s so varied and I hope he continues that in the future.
