ACTION & TENSION & SPACE is a spaced out instrumental lo-fi lounge outfit from Norway, consisting of members from bands like The Low Frequency in Stereo, Lumen Drones, Electric Eye, Soft Ride, Ape Club, Undergrünnen and the European backing band for Ryley Walker.

The music on their sophomore Skaredalen Funhouse is based on groovy basslines, chilling combo organs, smooth drums, crispy guitars and a surfing lap-steel. If you combine the ambience from The Necks, the lounge feel of The Friends of Dean Martinez, and the travelling spirit of Neu! mixed together in an apocalyptic The Doors-vibe, then you get ATS!

Skaredalen Funhouse is inspired by an actual house by the same name. The notorious house is somewhere outside of downtown Haugesund (south-west coast of Norway), without anyone knowing for sure exactly where it is. The mystery continues.

“Fans of this will be pleased to know that the Skåredalen Funhouse album promises to deliver more of this effective lounge formula. It’s shaping up to be a pleasant homage to the psychedelic sounds from The Doors-era of music, but with some more modern elements of funk thrown into the mix. One to watch for by all accounts.” – Everything Is Noise

“Mit Gitarre, Mellotron, Drums und Kontrabass entsteht ein rätselhafter Sound, der mitunter […] erstaunlich zugänglich und geradezu warm und groovig anmutet.” – Eclipsed

“Ein großartiges Album ohne Ende, man stelle auf Wiederholung um! Und bleibt zurück, tief beeindruckt von so viel Space.” – Ox Fanzine

“Das norwegische Quartett ACTION & TENSION & SPACE präsentiert uns mit „Skåredalen Funhouse“ einen herrlichen Tripp durch den instrumentalen Post-, Psych- und Krautrock der Siebziger, bei denen sie uns zwischen NEU! bis THE DOORS den Weg weisen und dabei niemals ihre skandinavisch-verträumten Wurzeln verleugnen.” – Musikreviews.de

“Leichtfüssig wie bei einem beschwingten Jazzstück, verspielt wie in der lockeren Psychedelica und gitarrenbewusst wie beim Post-Rock” – ArtNoir.ch
