Musicandotherthingz.com say this about NuBorg: “I’m certain that NuBorg can go from strength to strength with each set of new material that is released. Someone you should really check out and keep an eye on this year.”
Patagonia (melody/lyrics: NuBorg) is a song about courage and determination. The song is inspired by French author Antoine Saint-Exupéry’s literary work Night Flight from 1931, where two pilots disappear in the stormy night over Patagonia, South America in the heroic early days of commercial aviation. Saint-Exupéry, himself a pilot and the author of world famous novella The Little Prince, later disappeared during a flight over the Mediterannean during WW2.
NuBorg herself has had close contact with aviation, having lived in a Canadian airbase for a period and having travelled a single engine Cessna from winter storms in Alberta, Canada to Key West, Florida.
In Patagonia Bjorn Charles Dreyer tweaks his guitars, imitating the sounds of an airborne aircraft. The song is produced and mixed by Odd Jensen and NuBorg.
With this release NuBorg continues to explore her new sound of ambience, made up from NuBorg’s wispy vocals combined with the heavy rhythms from percussionist Erland Dahlen (Madrugada), many layers of ambient guitar by Bjorn Charles Dreyer (Lene Marlin, d’Sound) and sleek bass lines by Marius Reksjo (Beady Belle). The music is influenced by artists like Portishead, Massive Attack, Pink Floyd and the Beatles’ later period.
