It’s synth pop, but it isn’t. It’s electronica, but it isn’t. Thematically, it’s fantasy, inspired by The Lord of the Rings, but Josefin Berger brings all of these things together to create something wonderful, but that defies classification. The blend of musical genres, a tongue-in-cheek treatment of high fantasy, and the Berger’s clear, liquid-smooth yet crystal-sharp voice come together to create something that even the most battle-hardened orc would have fun dancing to.
It’s a fun video (be warned, there’s a rather irritated elf who flips Josefin the double eagle, so maybe don’t play this in front of your kids).
Josefin Berger is also an artist, and writer, and wildly creative. She’s one of those rare people who somehow stumbled into a fairy ring and lived to tell the tale.
Will you be able to hear this song on SCIFI.radio as part of our standard on-air library?
Would we miss the chance? This is what we do. Of course you will.
Synth Pop / Electronic Dance Music for all Elves & Orcs Out There!
I wrote the song inspired by working with LARP fantasy events, The Lord of the Rings and the high soprano melodies of Kate Bush. In elf language it’s offensive to say the phrase “go kiss an orc” and it means ”be gone, go kiss an orc”.
Go Kiss an Orc is a kind of a ”music serial” and will be released in different versions. This I see as the main version (there is another version released already, Go Kiss an Orc – Prologue). Hope you enjoy it!
