This Is Your Home


Press info

Beatservice Records arrive with their latest beguiling sonic instalment, presenting the gloriously offbeat 'This Is Your Home' from Oslo-based four-piece, Legs 11.

Formed of mischievous players Sigmund Floyd, Torstein Dyrnes, Nils Tveten, and Audun Severin Eftevåg, Legs 11 have been enlivening the Beatservice roster with their uncommonly imaginative soundscapes since making their label debut back in 2016. Fusing a disparate blend of esoteric sounds – including synth-pop, post-punk, new wave and house – the quartet journey from the darkest depths into pop-infused starlit skies, taking in all-manner of mind-altering dalliances in between. Fans of the group will know to expect the unexpected, and so it proves the case on their latest captivating cut.

Delightfully deviant and proudly unique, 'This Is Your Home' sees sleazy vocals soar across an alien landscape. Distorted toms drive the groove as mysterious swirls and metallic textures fizz across the off-world horizon. Growling bass arrives alongside a searing sax lead as the endlessly-morphing rhythm undulates and evolves. Bursting with personality, the aberrant flavours presented here leave us gasping for breath and restless to hear more from this intriguing production force.

The gloriously infectious track is the first to be lifted from Legs 11's long-awaited third album, 'Welcome Home'. With a further single due to arrive before the LP's November release date, thankfully we won't have to wait too long to hear more from this enthralling production outfit.

Flawless Logistics


Press info

Legs 11 return to Beatservice Records with their second single in quick succession, aiming directly for dancefloors on the club-primed brilliance of 'Flawless Logistics'.

The Oslo-based quartet of Sigmund Floyd, Torstein Dyrnes, Nils Tveten, and Audun Severin Eftevåg, have long been a deviant staple of the Beatservice roster. Following their label debut back in 2016, Legs 11 have been serving eclectic soundscapes that seamlessly blend synth-pop, post-punk, and house with an all-manner of seemingly disparate sonic influences.

Following on from the magnificent 'This Is Your Home', their latest musical curve-ball sees the band ignite a floor-focused charge via the boundless energy of 'Flawless Logistics'. Forged with a new wave swagger and embedded deep in the throngs of late-night rave abandon, the deliciously divergent track sees unhinged vocals power over a brisk tempo. Synth bass drives the cut through a futurist landscape of stripped rhythms and sinister tones as the portent vocal before the atmospheric sax solo rises in to augment the searing lyrical message. Casting a critical eye on consumer-driven culture and mercenary musical forms, the vital composition is at once an unmissable social commentary and an irresistibly floor-filling groove.

This hard-hitting jam is the second single to arrive from Legs 11's keenly awaited third album, 'Welcome Home'. Imaginative, uncompromising, and bursting with character, this is yet more electrifying work from this most charismatic collective.

Oslo-based four-piece Legs 11 return to Beatservice Records with their third studio album, serving seven beguiling tracks on the delightfully off-kilter 'Welcome Home'.

Comprising of deviant players Sigmund Floyd, Torstein Dyrnes, Nils Tveten, and Audun Severin Eftevåg, Legs 11 have been Beatservice mainstays since making their label debut back in 2016. Fusing a disparate blend of esoteric sounds that include synth-pop, post-punk, new wave, house and more, the quartet journey from the murkiest depths into the pop-leaning stratosphere, taking in all manner of mind-altering detours along the way. Throughout their production journey, they've revelled in the unexpected, and 'Welcome Home' masterfully continues this aberrant trajectory.

Kicking things off in energetic mood, the new wave swagger of 'Flawless Logistics' dives deep into late-night rave abandon, Unhinged vocals and throbbing synth bass drive the cut through a futurist landscape of stripped rhythms and sinister tones before an atmospheric sax solo rises in to augment the searing lyrical message. Casting a critical eye on consumer-driven culture and mercenary musical forms, the vital composition is at once an unmissable social commentary and an irresistibly floor-filling groove.

Next, the glistening synths and sing-along vocals of 'Coup' saunter over bouncing bass notes and crisp machine drums. Acid licks rise in to add thrust to the club-primed groove while brooding pads and sultry spoken words meander through the sonic space. Elegantly sashaying into post-punk swirls, the hallucinatory swagger of 'Sax Consensual' bursts with theatrics. Seductive dart across the hyper-atmospheric backing track of pointed instrumentation, with glassy synths and fizzing drums joined by an evocative sax solo to vividly conjure late-night moods.

'Into The Darkness' bubbles with sinister intent, as striking bass and stripped rhythms charge through nocturnal synths, the serrated vocals purposefully projecting through the powerfully vivid subterranean mist. Maintaining the floor-focused tempo, 'This Is Your Home' sees sleazy vocals soar across an alien landscape. Distorted toms drive the groove as mysterious swirls and metallic textures fizz across the off-world horizon. Growling bass arrives alongside a searing sax lead as the endlessly-morphing rhythm undulates and evolves.

'The Crawley Within' sees darkly suggestive vocals enveloped by ominous synths and snarling acid licks, the determined rhythm steering the sparsely-woven instrumentation across alien topography as sensual whispers permeate the groove as the music undulates to an aberrant climax. Finally, completing a strikingly coherent collection, 'fuckboi' brims with attitude, with unhinged synths joined by growling rhythm guitar as the erotically-charged vocals project the steamiest of post-club invitations.

This is entirely unique work from Legs 11. Deviant, potent, and fiercely energetic, each track is propulsive enough to ignite dancefloors while embodied with more than enough profundity for headphone immersion. Utterly compelling.
