Norwegian songwriter lifts the lid on her stunning debut

Following a 2014 project which saw each track released in a series of monthly singles, the wait is finally over for the first full album from superb Norwegian singer-songwriter NuBorg – aka Gunhild Nyborg. Mixing ambient electronica with classic song writing structures to create a unique, shape shifting group of tracks, this is one of the strongest and freshest debut LPs you’ll hear for some time.

With a range of songs including the life-affirming ‘You You’ as well as the darkly atmospheric ‘One Day’ and more, NuBorg is excited to finally unleash her full collection of singles on the world this week.

Typified by a deft attention to detail and the cultivation of a truly affecting sound, the album is both a labour of love and a truly startling achievement. For a taste of the shadowy world NuBorg creates, you need look no further than the brilliant album title track ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’:


Influenced by the music of Massive Attack, Portishead, Kate Bush, Ultravox and Pink Floyd among others, the album has been mastered by the legendary Doug Sax (Pink Floyd, The Doors, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Paul McCartney, Al Jarreau, INXS, Sting). Many of the tracks, thanks to the monthly releases last year, have already gained high praise from a host of online reviewers (see http://nuborg.com/press/), and the release of the full album is set to be the crowning achievement following a year of hard work and top class music.

All very impressive from a single mum who has been fighting a serious illness over the last few years. After that battle, NuBorg is grateful to be able to make the music she enjoys – Gunhild sums it up best herself:

“I am grateful for being able to make this music real, make it come out of my head and out through the loudspeakers. I have had this sound inside me for the longest time and I have worked on learning music production, songwriting, and vocal techniques in order to be able to make it real.” NuBorg

Available on vinyl, CD and digital download, ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’ – the debut album from NuBorg – is out now (Jan 8th).


Showcase with full band at The Islington, London on Thursday 22. Jan. 7:30-8 p.m. Entrance £5 at the door.
