Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg of Smerz alter between sonic touchstones from their youth such as musicals and classical music and swirling, trance-indebted synth lines, experimental hip-hop and R&B-tinged vocals. All elements shine through a kaleidoscopic lens; steering your attention through a myriad of vignettes and landscapes. Get to know their thoughts behind the record a little more in our interview with them.
Accompanied by violin, cello and piano, Smerz presents their debut album Believer in Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ for The Rest Is Noise.
