about

‘Okänt Land’ serves to explore Olle Holmberg’s relationship with geography - specifically, the ties and emotions connected with his childhood situation. ‘Okänt Land’ translates to ‘Unknown land’, perhaps revealing that this relationship is one that is ambiguous, lapsed, mystical, and open to exploration - ideas that certainly resonate with the emotional effects of the music Moon Wheel has presented on this 6 track album.

Exploratory is a word that perfectly sums up the vibe of ‘Okänt Land’, there is a meditative pace which permeates Olle’s work, in which we are able to physically feel the manipulation of sound used to create an effect that grows from a very personal and human exploration of both nature and space - we literally hear the pulse of a heartbeat in the beatwork, we hear the cracking of unfamiliar objects underfoot that shake us back into consciousness, and we feel the sense of dread and anticipation that can come with the entering of an unknown sphere.

It’s hard to decipher wether Olle is concerned with the mostly known world of nature and the healing properties it harbours, or the physically unknown world of outer space, but I imagine this is purposeful… an intentional mixture which serves to both soothe and excite the soul.
