You wait for one Norwegian unable to forget someone to come along, and right behind comes another.  Ole Kirkeng, however, seems to dealing with his worries in a rather simpler way.  Although simpler is not necessarily all that effective, as he sings on this jaunty little folk-rocker “I tried every drink known to mankind – but there you are, still on my mind.

Still on My Mind‘ was written in the summer of 2021, and was developed at the kitchen table, at rehearsal and during walks around Oslo.  Kirkeng brought the rhythm section from his debut album – Tor Egil Kreken and Thomas Gallatin (of Darling West) and Sander Eriksen – to the legendary studio Athletic Sound in Halden, where they further sculpted the arrangements.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
