Becoming part of the Groove Cartel Family with his rework of the classic “Lola’s Theme,” Sweden upcoming talent Storgards debuts on the main label with an outstanding EP called “Mono No Aware EP.”
Mono No Aware (物の哀れ) is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence, or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life.
The EP reflects perfectly this mood. Starting with an amazing progression of sounds, “Vemodet,” in collaboration with Anckarstrom, is the opening track of the EP that rapidly goes deep with “Holmen.” “Gränden” closes this absolute piece of art with its underground and relaxing vibes, making this EP a truly travel through your soul.
