Whereas the first record was an introspective and contemplative album, Waldemar unleashed a rock’n’roll monster on No Offending Borders. Angry with Norway’s inhuman immigration policy, Waldemar let his fury be heard among crunching guitars, backed by a juggernaut band. The album also properly launched Waldemar outside of Norway with rave reviews in the UK, Germany and Benelux.
Waldemar then recorded a covers EP of sorts – only, he did covers of his own songs. Jamais Vu (2018) contains electrified versions of songs from his album debut, and stripped down versions of the rock songs from his second album.
In the summer and fall of 2019, Torgeir Waldemar recorded his third full-length album, Love. The album is a call to compassion, but also a meditation around love and the awesome and horrible things it can make us do. Backed by his mighty band, the album is vintage Waldemar, while at the same time taking his music in new directions.
