Pjusk is Rune Sagevik and Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik from the west coast of Norway – both from small villages close to nature. The sound of Pjusk is inspired by the harsh Norwegian weather and wild landscape. At the center point of the collaboration between the two is an old cabin high up in the mountains. This is where most of the music of Pjusk is made – framed by snowy peaks and the sound of cold streams.
The album Tele (the Norwegian word describing frozen underground water) is a natural progression from the album Sval released on the US label 12k in 2010. Inspired by the arctic wilderness, Tele is a journey of snow, ice and cold.
