Norwegian Arms: Tired of Being Cold.

May 9, 2012

Our old friend Keith Birthday, aka Brendan Mulvihill of Norwegian Arms, reached out to us to say that Norwegian Arms dropped the first song from their forthcoming LP (most likely due out in the fall).

“It’s a song expressing frustration at being stuck in -40 degree temperatures for an extended period of time in a place one doesn’t feel comfortable in and longing for home,” Brendan wrote to us. “Homesickness at it’s rawest. That being said, the song is really upbeat.”

The song was recorded at Meth Beach, also known as the Dr. Dog studio, by Michael Chadwick (of the now-defunct Armchairs). It was produced with Jose Diaz of the Seattle band Neighbors.

The track, as well as the full album, was written while Brendan was on a Fulbright scholarship in Siberia, in Tomsk, Russia. He wrote about his experiences for JUMP last summer. You can find the story here.

Brendan’s partner in Norwegian Arms is Eric Slick, who also drums for Dr. Dog. Check out our story about Eric from the winter issue.

Norwegian Arms will play tonight at Kung Fu Necktie with Warm Weather and Ecce Shnak. Find details here.
