Memènto Mori, with his dark, distinct voice and his wonderful ability to make timeless and innovative songs with catcy tunes, has managed to arrange and produce tunes that manage to sneak into our bone marrow and stay there forever.
The artist is actually named Pål-Andrè Rauan and comes from Larvik. His debut album, "My Minor Universe", will come in 2017.
With a blend of melancholy chords, its dark voice, multi-voice choirs, texts of life and death as well as hope and love, Memènto Mori draws inspiration from the dark and melancholy like Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, dreamy harmonies, catchy melodies and surprising chord change like The Beach Boys.
Many of the songs and especially the lyrics came after a tough period in Rauan's life when he fought against cancer in 2007. After he was declared healthy, he had a different view of life, which characterizes his songs to a large extent.
Pål-Andrè Rauan has played with his brother, Bellman, from the beginning (2005) on records, at concerts and as a co-arranger of the songs.
Memènto Mori has written all the songs themselves, as well as produced and arranged them. Everything is recorded in AMG studios with studio technician Anders Grimstad. The songs are mixed by Jonas Rohde-Moe and Andreas Eide Larsen and mastering in New York and Stockholm.
