Today sees the release of MEER’s new  album, “Playing House” on Karisma Records, and the Alternative Rock Orchestra  has celebrated in style,  revealing  a video for the track “Beehive”. 

The video, which features an animated series of paintings, was filmed, edited, and produced by Beth Madeley, and can be seen below and at at https://youtu.be/54uzhgceNZs 

It is a stunning animation, about which the band had this to say:

The Beehive video is made by the amazing animator and illustrator Beth Madeley. We gave Beth full artistic freedom to make her visual interpretation of the song, and we are awestruck with what she came up with.

A band whose music is mix of orchestral pop, classical music and progressive rock, MEER started life as a duo in Hamar, Norway, in 2008, expanding to become an eight piece whose individual musicians brought with them their own styles, musical interests and influences, to create an interesting eclectic sound.  

With “Playing House”,  MEER’s lineup of Johanne Kippersund on vocals, Knut Kippersund on vocals, Eivind Strømstad on guitar, Åsa Ree on violin, Ingvild Nordstoga Eide on viola, Ole Gjøstøl on keyboards, Morten Strypet on bass and Mats Lillehaug on drums have created a sophomore album with a massive sound whose melodies and harmonies bring with them a few surprises.

Recorded at Ocean Sound Recording and Tanken, “Playing House” is  produced by Lars Gärtner Fremmerlid (EINAR STRAY ORCHESTRA).  With artwork by Helena Haglund and Simen Skari, tracklisting for “Playing House”  is as follows:
