Bagland has always been curious to explore in new directions. This album is no exception. The sound on States Of Being pays tribute to our musical distinction and creates space for our different nuances.
The sound was developed on our tour in Finland during 2020 and is now ready for your ears.
Thanks to Alex, Frej, Mathias and Frederik for your music.
A special thanks to Mathias Jæger, for not only colouring the music with his playing but also supervising and guiding throughout the entire process. Thanks to Josefine Opsahl and Anna Jalving for also adding new dimensions.
Thanks to Kirsten Klein for capturing nature’s beauty depicting the inner pictures our music evokes.
Thanks to Dansk Artist Forbund, Aarhus Kommune and Statens Kunstfond for financial support.

I have been searching for jazzy music similar to "ambient jazz ensemble" I finally found it. sweet jazz, with electronic trip hop downtempo elements. I've listened to all the albums, and this one is my fave. it's impossible to pick a favorite, but it would either be,
Juniper, hyperloop, crossings, or eight days lol. MajikDan

Pretty much everything. The playing is incredible and the compositions lovely. But most of all I love the intensity of listening, joy and collaboration that oozes from every piece. Three of today's finest jazz musicians who were clearly thirsting for live co-creation and pull off a masterpiece on this album. tjsimon1
