Leif Vollebekk: Influences

Leif Vollebekk: Influences

Leif Vollebekk's lush folk definitely has roots in the soft strums of tunes like Nick Drake's “Pink Moon,” but it also borrows from more intricate work, like the sweet melodies of The Beach Boys' “Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder).” The orchestral swells of his most sweeping songs recall fellow Nordic artists Sigur Rós and the stunning strings on their “Andvari.” And his soothing gentleness has a kinship with The Velvets' “Pale Blue Eyes.”
