When: Tue., Jan. 31, 8 p.m. 2017
After releasing three new singles in 2016, New York City-based folksy electro project Norwegian Arms just dropped their latest album, Girard Freeloader. According to the man behind the project, Keith Birthday, Norwegian Arms means “grabbing slivers of fleeting moments from across the globe, but in a self-deprecating way.” Much of Birthday’s songwriting inspiration comes from his extensive travels. From Anacortes, Wash., to the desolate Siberian taiga, he channels his experiences in these disparate places into a sound that incorporates earlier freak folk influences with contemporary electronic production. Check out Norwegian Arms on Tuesday, January 31, at SideBar in Burlington, with support from locals Osage Orange and Wren Kitz.
