"Ein Geniestreich"
Nordische musik (DE)

"Faszinierend schräg und doch eingängig"
Jazzthetik (DE)


The new album - In Case of Fire - was released on Enja/Yellowbird last October, and has received much praise, as for instance:

"[Offpiste Gurus is] a band that pulls together the pop sensibilities of the indie world with the slow soulful lilt of a jazz ensemble"
Nordic Spotlight blog (US)

"a very sly and sharply focused commentary on modern life", "one is strongly drawn into this very personal world"
Bud Koppman

"Truly original and far beyond limits of what is jazz, rock punk, rockabilly and experimental" This is an album, you have to hear over and over again too really fathom, how far ahead Lundin and Væring are"
Peter Rahbek in Jazzspecial (music magazine) (DK)

"In her own category amongst her Scandinavian colleagues in the borderland between pop and jazz"(…) "Rather than the young grand child of Billie Holiday she is more likely to be the dreamy headstrong daughter of Tom Waits" (…) "Sometimes Offpiste Gurus sound like a smoky blues club, but then you find yourself amidst the atmosphere of a Quentin-Terantino-filmshoot"… "Fascinatingly unorthodox yet catchy"
Andreas Schneider in JazzThetik (music magazine) (DE)

"Yet another brave and uncompromising artistic riot against rigid genres"(…) "The brass, the voice, the rhythm - dusty, trashy, sophisticated and dynamic - the way it is comes together is unorthodox, but it works in a very convincing way. (..) Offpiste Gurus stand for brave and serious determination"
Ivan Rod in Gaffa (music magazine) (DK)

"The overall feel produced by these songs is a very sly and sharply focused commentary on modern life" (..) "As the tracks progress, one is strongly drawn into this very personal world and, in the end, to become a part of it. It is also virtually guaranteed that the tunes will lodge into the mind"
Budd Kopman All About Jazz (US)

“For those who dare to expand their horizon I say: lend an ear or two to Offpiste Gurus. You might strike gold !”
Stig Linderoth i Orkesterjournalen (SE)

"Female extraordinaire songwriter meets Scandinavian jazz saxophonist"
Recommendation from the Nordic Vibrations blog (SE/us) "5 things to do"

"A stroke of genius." (…) "All the songs are outstanding…. unorthodox yet catchy, some even addictive"(…) "The band's sound is unique" (…) "You can easily listen to this cd 20 times in a row".
Tim Kleinecke on the site Nordische musik (DE)

"The laid back expression, lets Trinelise shine as cool as a Danish Rickie Lee Jones"
Kim Skotte in Politiken (newpaper)(DK)

"In Case of Fire is some of the hippest genre-eliminating music that has come out in a long time"
Tor Hammerø on his blog (NO)

"This strong-willed quartet has created a very special variation of jazz-pop……"strongly recommended"
Jörg Schmitt on the Sonic Soul blog (DE)

"Carefully shaken and stirred ingredients in this very personal musical cocktail, which defies genre definition" (…) " In Case of Fire- Just taste it…"
Concerto (musicmagazine) (AT)

"Groovy arrangements along with Vaerings strong and districtive vocal"
Roald Helgheim in Dagsavisen (newspaper) (NO)

"The lyrics are a real joy"… "extremely recommendable"
Kerstin Siemonsen on the Virgin Jazzface blog (DE)

"In Case of Fire is some of the hippest genre-eliminating music that has come out in a long time" - Tor de Jazz (NO)
