This is the second release by multi-Nordic septet Horse Orchesta. The release is a follow-up on the debut album Living the Dream (2014) which was granted two Danish Music Awards in the categories New name of the year and Special release of the year. 

Four Letter Word was recorded live in Copenhagen, 2016.

Horse Orchestra consists of seven young musicians from Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark. With little respect for conformities and hierarchies of genres, and with instrumental and compositional virtuosity, the band has created a unique and humorous mixture of genres – ranging from traditional jazz, via hip hop, to noise.

As the seven members of the band represent almost all the Nordic countries, this band is an interesting proposal of how modern Nordic music may sound.
