A Sterk Film production Directed by Stian Kristiansen Photography - Arne Bru Haug Editor - Tommy Enervold Jørpeland Produced by Werner Andreassen. Even before releasing his debut album the then 24 years old Sebastian Waldejer was honored as the official "Artist Of The Year" by the culture council of his hometown Stavanger, Norway. The combination of well written lyrics, beautiful melodies and his DIY approach quickly established him as a talent to keep an eye on. After the well received release of his debut album "Rise Of The Urban Child", Sebastian toured Great Britain as support act for Thomas Dybdahl. After the tour Thomas invited Sebastian to join his regular band ("That Great October Sound") as a multi-instrumentalist. Sebastian decided to put his own gigging on hold to tour with Thomas and hone his skills as a musician and live performer. He never stopped writing music though, and in 2011 Sebastian released his new single "We Never Get Away Anymore", co-produced by Thomas Dybdahl. August 2013 Sebastian Waldejer releases the first of two EP's this fall. The theme of "Battles EP" are four love stories, from four very different individuals who all are battling their thoughts and emotions. The songs on the EP is set in a darker mood than Sebastian's previous releases. The darker mood is balanced by playfulness in the details and catchy melodies. The EP is produced by the artist himself, except "Stop Taking A Part", which was recored at Braund Studios (NYC) and produced by Caleb Lindskoog.
CCAP proudly presents exclusive Soundcloud prelisten of "Battles», a track from "Battles EP" (release 26. August 2013) by Norwegian artist Sebastian Waldejer
Sebastian has released two singles, two EP's, one album and a remix album collaboration with John Derek Bishop. His earlier offerings has seen him being compared with artists as varied as Radiohead, Prefab Sprout and John Cale. His 2012 single "We Never Get Away Anymore" (co-produced by Thomas Dybdahl) saw Sebastian take a slightly new direction. More up-tempo and, dare we say, "indie-pop" than his former releases. Energetic, melodic and melancholic are terms that can describe the music from Sebastian, who have been traveling around Europe and USA the last 3 years with Thomas Dybdahl , both as a support act and as a musician in his live-band "That Great October Sound". Sebastian Waldejer's releases are available as a digital download and streaming and on CD. The "We Never Get Away" single is also available on bandcamp as a beautiful 7" vinyl single including B-side "The Ocean Is Full Of tears" (Stumptown Printers Arigato cover, design and silkscreen printed by Kjetil Brandsdal) Sebastian Waldejer discography: "France EP" (2008)

A few months ago Sebastian Waldjer released his brilliant new single «We Never Get Away Anymore». This week we stumbled upon a great new track by the US band Real Estate. These two tracks are amazingly similar. We doubt either of these artists have heard about each other before these tracks where released and that it is all a coincidence. It´s a small world after all? (™Disney) Whats your opinion?
