In 2017, Marcus Norberg stepped out of the collectivity of his band YAST and into the spotlight as Marcus Norberg and the Disappointments. An album of baroque alt-rock followed called Heal The World, and now Norberg is returning with a follow-up: the EP Absolute Music along with new track “Talk Me Out Of It”.
The latest single to drop from Marcus Norberg and the Disappointments' new EP is “Talk Me Out Of It”, and across a field of pretty guitar fuzz, Norberg unspools his rich, deep voice for a gorgeous crypto-ballad about fearing for your neck.
The track's breezy dreaminess means people not listening too closely might take it for a love song. “'Talk Me Out Of It' is something of a therapeutic song about when I got robbed in Möllan (in Malmö) four years ago,” explains Norberg. “It felt too real and hard for me to be able to do something with it. But time heals, as they say, and I'm very happy with how it turned out."
It’s characteristic of the nihilist’s humour that flows through the project that he’s written a song with such a subject matter.
