deceit

An outtake from the comeback-album Endurance.
Following the song Hole in the Soul, released in November 2018, this one flows with a different beat and is called Deceit.

(behold the amazing artwork by Peter Ravn)


The danish band naïve had its first heyday from 1985 to 1995. Then, 23 years later, the band re-emerged as a new entity.
The loss of guitarist and producer Hilmer Hassig, who died november 16th 2008, left Claus Berthelsen alone in charge.
Finally he now releases new songs with a new line-up.

Stay tuned to get insight, but be patient. This is not for the moment but for eternity (as we put it).
