In their most recent project, DelVita infuses the skank and energy of electronic music into their acoustic sound, while still using jazz as a get-out clause to avoid everything you’ve heard before. In this project the soundbrewing brothers enter a new cosmos. With carefully crafted compositions they strive for an interesting mix of upbeat alt-rock while at the same time keeping a slow sonic intensity that recalls Radiohead.
“The songs recall Radiohead, the improvisations bring to mind Shorter. But it’s DelVita, and it’s fantastic” – Le Soir
The band combines framed improvisational freedom inspired by Wayne Shorter with concepts influenced by Kurt Rosenwinkel to make for an explosive style that is not shy of intimate and minimalistic moments. From raving acoustic beats to nuanced ensemble-playing the brothers are able to create a unique sound that encompasses both a cosmic perspective and the smallest possible micro world.
Their latest album “Abyss” was released in May 2018.

“It starts with an atmospheric soundscape, worthy of a Danish thriller. Slowly the contours of the wind instruments start to appear in the musical fog. But this image is suddenly turned upside down by razor-sharp rhythmical incisions” – jazzhalo
