Saxophonist Bendik Giske releases his second studio album on Smalltown Supersound. Following 2019’s powerful yet vulnerable debut ‘Surrender’, on ‘Cracks’ the artist adopts the tried-and-tested (and artistically rewarding) technique of using the whole studio as an instrument, making for an even more expressive listening experience.
"The Norwegian musician mics the whole studio, influenced by everything from techno to queer theory, on his hypnotic second album"
The Guardian (Contemporary Album of the Month)
"Throughout Cracks, Giske appears to be striving for an alien, private vocabulary with an instrument saddled with 175 years of tradition and tropes. Against great odds, he succeeds."
