With MEER, complexity prevails both in terms of the name and the music

21. January 2021

Bei MEER herrscht sowohl bezüglich des Namens als auch der Musik Komplexität vor

Is it a band? An orchestra? A collective? MEER are not easy to categorize. Started as a duo, there are now eight musicians in the ranks of the troupe hailing from Hamar, Norway. "We used to play together as 'Ted Glen Extended'. Apart from the fact that the name is completely nonsensical, no one could remember it either", Eivind Strømstad tells. The guitarist and his wife Johanne (vocals) are the founders, later Johannes' brother Knut (vocals), his piano teacher Ole (keyboards), school friends Mats (drums) and Åsa (violin) as well as Ingvild (viola) and Morten (bass) joined the band.
