TPO is a young Dutch/Danish trio. Reflecting Nordic landscapes and soundscapes, the trio uses space and silence as its main musical tools. Playing improvisations and original songs, TPO creates a crystal-clear sound which is fragile yet grounded at the same time. The end result is music with a strong gravitational pull, inviting the listener in from the very first note.
In November 2014, the band spent two days in the studio, recording material for their debut album, entitled Fjord. This album was released on the 20th of November 2015. Find out more about Fjord.
