Funkhaus Berlin is proud to invite you to Saal 1 to see Einar Stray Orchestra. "We write about double moral, a love-hate relationship to Oslo, as well as new aspects of our religious upbringing. The record's maximalistic soundscape is inspired by everything from arabic folk music to Lana Del Rey," explains the band
Einar Stray Orchestra is a Norwegian indie-pop and post-rock band. The young quintet have released two albums to rave critics, two EP's, and have played more than 200 concerts in Europe/Asia. Combining classical and folk music with pop and rock they have played several sold out headliner tours and festivals. Einar Stray Orchestra is influenced by bands such as Sufjan Stevens, Bright Eyes, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
Einar Stray (born 1990) started recording songs in his bedroom in Sandvika, a little town located in the south west of Osloin 2006. As an experimental singer/songwriter he brought musician friends with him on stage, and together they produced music both delicate and grandiose with strings, blows, percussion, choir parts, noisy guitars, and a classical inspired piano style - counting 11 band members at its most.
