Review in Lira

“NID disclaims they explore ensemble playing, and that’s no understatement. All arrangements are detailed and obviously extremely carefully rehearsed, every little syncope or dynamic shifting is done with extreme precision. The focus is on the tunes, performed on violin by Mia Marin, soprano saxophone Hanna Wiskari Griffiths and percussionist Petter Berndalen on his highly personal way. The trio plays mostly traditional tunes from Sweden and Norway, and a handful of their own compositions. Homecoming Queen is NID’s second album, seven years after the onset, but clearly worth the wait. It swings properly and stylish melodies and dense and constantly varied interplay makes this a really nice folk album. ”
