GRAMMY® nominated Norwegian singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer JARLE BERNHOFT recently released his fourth full-length album Humanoid and first as BERNHOFT &THE FASHION BRUISES via Big Picnic Records. Recorded as a full band, Humanoid unlocks asoulful spirit buoyed by simmering R&B grooves and powerful pop hooks. In assembling this bold, bright, and brilliant body of work, Bernhoft surveyed the landscape and made a conscious decision to go against the grain.

With Bernhoft at the producer’s helm, Humanoid was recorded in two weeks at Oslo Klang studios in Norway. “We did this all as a band,” he continues. “We didn’t use computers. We really played through everything. The Fashion Bruises are such an integral part of the sound. The days of playing solo aren’t over, but I’m definitely taking a break. The goal was to keep this like a live performance.” BERNHOFT AND THE FASHION BRUISES recently embarked on a North American tour with East Coast dates in September and will be playing West Coast shows in December.
