Vernacular Music combines folk-rock with elements from chamber music creating a new and exciting nordic sound. The classical guitar is the main element on Vernacular Music and it is complemented and accompanied by bass, drums, rhodes and electric guitars as well as new elements in Chorus Grant's universe such as recorder, saw, vibraphone, violin, clarinet, cello and baritone saxophone. In the middle of the sonic universe, Kristian Finne’s vocal serves as a guide into Chorus Grant’s intimate world with its peculiar blend of being singable and catchy on one side and also being challenging and experimental another level.
The album is guest by a group of prominent musicians, including the English drummer Sebastian Rochford (Polar Bear, Patti Smith, David Byrne / Brian Eno among others), Danish CTM (Cæcilie Trier) and violinist Nils Gröndahl among others. The music is recorded in Copenhagen with the band members Camilla Munck and Moogie Johnson and is produced in collaboration with Mads Brinch and Nis Bysted (who was recently awarded as Producer of the Year at the Danish critic’s award Steppeulven).
