Sound of ambience

Norwegian songwriter NuBorg to release debut after a decade of setbacks



Norwegian singer-songwriter NuBorg releases her debut album ‘Sliding Off The Edge of the World’ in the UK on 4th December 2015 on the Different Sound label.


Mixing ambient electronica with classic songwriting, vocalist, songwriter and producer NuBorg (real name Gunhild Nyborg), released each of the album’s tracks as singles throughout 2014, including the life-affirming ‘You You’ (, the darkly atmospheric ‘One Day’ ( and the album’s brilliant title track (


Typified by a deft attention to detail, the cultivation of NuBorg’s ambient sound is characterized by haunting vocals, layers of atmospheric guitars by Bjørn C. Dreyer (Lene Marlin), Marius Reksjø’s (Beady Belle) sleek bass lines, drummer Erland Dahlen’s (Madrugada) heavy beats and guest guitarist Gildas Le Pape (Satyricon).


Influenced by the music of Massive Attack, Portishead, Kate Bush and Ultravox, among others, the songs featured on ‘Sliding Off The Edge of the World’ were written by NuBorg, with co-writes from multiplatinum selling UK songwriters Martin Sutton (Leann Rimes) and Christopher Neil (Celine Dion, Cher).


The album was produced and mixed by Odd Jensen and NuBorg, before being mastered by Morgan Nicolaysen and the late great Doug Sax (Pink Floyd, The Doors, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Paul McCartney, Al Jarreau, INXS, Sting).


NuBorg’s debut album was released in Norway in Jan. 2015.


Sliding Off the Edge of the World is on TIDAL’s High Fidelity Vol. IV playlist.
