The Swedish/Norwegian band SVER play epic Nordic folk music with relentless energy and a seductive spark. Since the group’s inception, SVER has played extensively throughout Europe and the U.S., gaining a reputation as an exciting, compelling live act in the Nordic folk scene.
SVER’s latest album “Reverie” (2018) – their fourth release – arrived as they celebrated ten years together as a quintet. Listen to these musicians as they swing together and you will understand why they have won a reputation as red-hot performers whose shows are sizzling affairs.
SVER has often been described as “sounding electric without electricity” and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia’s leading singers in different genres. That has lead to playing on TV shows and at big festivals, and positions in the radio charts alongside music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musical traditions.
