Taking a free improvisational approach to the sound of Danish folkloristic songs, Elm reinterprets what has been called the “Nordic sound”.
Their compositions are greatly inspired by songs from Højskolesangbogen (The songbook of Danish folk schools) and Den Danske Salmebog (The Danish book of church hymns), and these melodies serves as references in their free improvisations.
