The band writes:
Floating Sofa Quartet is a modern Nordic folk music ensemble consisting of four young musicians from Denmark, Sweden and Finland. With a unique combination of instruments this quartet performs handmade music with a scent of dewy pine trees, salty sea breezes, and freshly brewed coffee. Their repertoire is a mixture of own compositions and traditional pieces from their respective countries; tender melodies and feisty dance tunes are performed with intriguing harmonies, intensity, humor and the warm acoustic sound of wooden instruments. Take a seat on the sofa and float away!
