This band is a kaleidoscopic labyrinth made of kinetic sculptures and intersecting planes of conflicting meanings, once populated by weird and slippery characters struggling with unintelligible situations: subject to any interpretation, their songs are the picture of a subtle and incandescent mood. Or maybe it's not.
The band is currently writing and testing new songs on stage, working on the follow-up to their second album "Sophia Verloren" released at the end of 2012 by Solaris Empire and Acid Cobra Records.
One day after the showcase as opening act for Simone Felice at Schokoladen on Thursday 15.05, THE SOMNAMBULIST will perform their whole current live repertoire at Antje Øklesund.
"Ohne Grenzen: SOPHIA VERLOREN bietet wunderbar instrumentierte Musik, bei der verschiedenste Genres fusionieren und Nonkonformität nicht in erster Linie als Kunstform oder gar Provokation zelebriert wird, sondern als Lebensform.
Another step to a better world (/music)."

"Das musikalische Spektrum der Somnambulist ist immens. Durch das Anhören dieses Albums gelangt man eher zu mehr Weisheit."
Rote Raupe, DE
"In dieser Hinsicht gibt es keine Band, die unsere Zeit besser repräsentiert als diese, die uns aus der Musik-Krise zur Krisenmusik führt."
Part female, part animal, She Owl's voice is in tune with the creatures of forest.
The music is wild and evocative, cut to the bones, a blend of darkness, tenderness and despair ignited by psychedelic and neoclassical flames.
Multi-instrumentalist storyteller Jolanda Moletta's latest project, She Owl recorded their full-length debut in San Francisco.
The record has been released on October 7th, 2013 by Broken Toys, PPZK (Peter Piek) in Europe and DIT Records (Amanda Rogers) in the US.
Their live performances around the US and Europe have been compared to the ones of Bat for Lashes, Faun Fables, My Brightest Diamond, Siouxsie, PJ Harvey.
"...for depth, beauty and pure emotion, it's well worth taking the extra time to get to know this record, and you might just find yourself getting lost in a different world."
The Sound of Confusion, UK
"...a lovely set of tunes to get lost in, a magical place where a beautiful voice wraps you in a soft embrace and tells you it's okay to be lost and not afraid."
