about

Jazzbanditt & Eva Scholten is an acoustic quartet based in Oslo and Amsterdam. The group consists of vocals, two acoustic guitars (dreadnought/nylon/selmer ++) and a double bass.
Together they have chosen to combine music that belongs on the standard end of the scale with their own more free and lyrical compositions. This duality in their musical expression made it so that their first album would be a two part album, and it was given the fitting name "Oxymorons & Contranypmhs". This album is soothing for the ear, challenging for the head and necessary for the heart.

Track Name: The seminal blink of our dog days
In all it’s splender this is what she said
‘Summer agrees with you
but we’re running out of thread.
So consider this our pension from the dramatics. This way we can rid ourselves of tension,
this way we won’t lose our heads.
Maybe we could just
think of it as reasoning with trouble
and remember to forget those moments which apparently we can’t seem
to shake nor stop remembering’
-
And in all its splender this is what I heard
‘You’re running out of options
please don’t make this seem all too absurd’
So to consider this our pension from the dramatics would be like embracing a defeat
while keeping heads we lose our hearts
All the more reason to
Think of it as reasoning with trouble
I won’t remember to forget those moments abandoning our heads and thus gaining us ours hearts
Track Name: Maistua
There, on a mountain top
in the midnight sun
with you
And here, in an open field
in the pouring rain
with you

We belong together
barefoot and at peace we'll
roam the earth forever

And here, in the morning fog
in the midst of clouds
you will sleep
Then wake by the sound of bells
in the midnight sun
with me

We belong together
barefoot and at peace we'll
roam the earth forever
never growing old and
never growing tired
we remain united
nature in our hearts
everything is
everything is
love
Track Name: Where do we go from here?
All alone,
Surrounded by the faults of my past Don’t know <how> long I will/can last Tell me; where do I go from here?
I am lost
The weight of all my options’ too grand I don’t know were to land
Tell me; where do I go from here?
(but) There you are, smiling softly Lifting my troubles, taking my hand your love will take me through
Suddenly
I’m not traveling alone anymore We have places to go, things to do Where do we go from here
There you are, breathing calmly
Telling me softly, darlin’, there is nothing standing in our way
Now I see
Together we are making our way we’re wandering ’til the break of day where shall we go from here
Flying high
We’re passing stations, splendidly lost life is our destination that is
where we’ll go from here
Here we are, you’re holding me firmly Telling me softly, darlin’, there is nothing standing in our way
Track Name: I believe in love
You believe everything is meant to be
that we all have a destiny
that it’s written in the stars

You said to me; “everyone needs a lucky charm”
superstitious like a man at sea
and at the mercy of your fate

All my life
I have love unconditionally
and only a broken heart
is capable of such love
Again and again I gave my heart
away to somebody new
and finally I met you

You believe everything is meant to be
But I do not believe in destiny
I believe in love…
