about

An eclectic soundtrack to the best space sci-fi film you've never seen - because it doesn't exist. Family is a double-concept album dedicated to our solar system and Vårum's own extended family, with each track initialed per family member.

Vårum blends crisp, instrumental electronica with neo-classical elements on an epic, genre-busting journey through the cosmos. From the haunting, ethereal drone tones drawing you in on Helios / Prelude; through the beautiful orchestral sparkle of Venus / V; to the wistful and delicate melancholy of first single Earth / S; to the upbeat space disco of Jupiter / B; to the choral swell of folk-like Saturn / R, through the techno undertones of the storming and ever-shapeshifting Uranus / M; to the four-to-the-floor stomp of bass-heavy Haumea / U; ending on the crunchy guitars of the glistening trip-hop ode Eris / C - the album offers a diverse collection of moods and soundscapes for every taste.

For fans of musical giants Jean-Michel Jarre, William Orbit, Röyksopp, Mike Oldfield, Orbital, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk and Enya.
