BIO: Intertwine is the pop/ambient music project of Norwegian musician and architect Tarjei Zakarias Ekelund. He started making music as Intertwine in 2006, experimenting with layers of reverb-soaked trumpets, vocals contrasted with crisp electronic beats. He gave his first concert in 2012 after being awarded "Urørt of the week" by P3, Norway's biggest radio channel. In 2013 he was nominated for "Urørt of the year" (but didn't win). On November 6, 2015, his debut album "Goraikoo", which was largely written while he was studying architecture in Tokyo, is released on Norwegian indie label Brilliance Records.

 

Intertwine's music can be desribed as melancholic, emotional electronic pop. Sometimes euphoric, sometimes mellow. The sound is characterized by an old, rusty cornet, which Tarjei's father, Bjørn, gave to him.
