«Alle Hjerter Deler Seg» is a record that take Oslo Ess back to their roots; true Punk. The album does not only contain new tracks, written and composed on different hotel rooms, studios and tour-busses the past year, but also tracks from the first days as a band. A time when the creativity was in great bloom in between the concrete walls of various rehearsal rooms and bomb shelters located on the worst parts of their beloved hometown Oslo.
The album was recorded in idyllic surroundings at Ocean Sound Recordings in Giske, Norway with Nick Terry, and in Parachute Studios in Oslo with help from Roar Nilsen (The Cumshots) and Bjarte Lund Rolland (Kvelertak). The third record from Oslo Ess is fierce and tough at times, tight from the beginning til the end in accordance with the core of their music and with the characteristic Oslo Ess-elements like catchy choruses, melodic guitar-riffs and mischievous lyrics that together define Alle Hjerter Deler Seg.

With this donation, Oslo Ess wants to give something back to the city that has been of such big impact for the band and their music, by giving some extra attention to the those how have made the streets their home.
