Ahead of the release of their second album, Meir, Norwegian blackened party punk rock ‘n’ rollers, Kvelertak had a day of hanging about in London talking to relative strangers about that album. We were among that press gang and asked singer, Erlend Hjelvik and guitarist, Vidar Landa all about Roadrunner Records, lyrics and being Norwegian.

There are bands that try to say fuck you to the world and there are bands that want to sound like bands that try to say fuck you to the world. Kvelertak couldn’t care less for either. They are their own category. They have three guitarists. One of them fingerpicks. They are their own prestigious circle of original thought and masterful creativity. You will never see inside this secret society because you are not worthy. Also because this is a band so humble and passionate in their approach to music, they are blissfully unaware that with their second album Meir, they have created a league of their own and have been saying “Fuck you” to the world since day one.
