about

"nós juntámo-nos porque sim.
the orm é retirado do The Vorrh do Brian Catling
a sua etimologia está ligada ao campo lexical das serpentes, em línguas do norte.
nós gravamos de cada vez que tocamos
guitarras eléctricas com afinações supergraves, comummente usadas no metal
mas fazemos dad-rock
não buscamos nenhuma narrativa
é uma atitude escultórica 
colaborativa mas não comunicativa
o nosso primeiro lp demorou 2 anos a sair da fábrica
e o sol e a lua ainda aí estão
não temos FOMO nem zeitgeistness nem pressa nenhuma
mas adoramos tocar juntos quando dá
em nome da amizade amplificada no vácuo de uma válvula
uma das mais claras expressões do nada na música
no vazio da onda"

~

"we got together just because.
the orm comes from Brian Catling’s The Vorrh
its etymology relates to the lexical field of serpents, in the languages of the North.
we record each time we play
electric guitars with ultra-low tuning, commonly used in metal
but we do dad-rock
we do not seek narrative
it is a sculptoral attitude
collaborative but not communicative
our first lp took 2 years to come out of the factory
and the sun and the moon are still there
we have no FOMO nor zeitgeistness nor any rush
but we love to play together when we can
in the name of friendship amplified in the vacuum of a valve
one of the clearest expressions of nothing in music
in the emptiness of a wave"
