For a couple of years now, the Norwegian duo TWMTH have been carving out their own distinct wave of chillwave electro, coupled with raw punk attitude. With followers all over Europe, Londoners have been constantly exclaiming “we need more bands like you” while Berliners have been dancing until they choke on their pretzels. After the release of their second single via the fast-rising Norwegian label Brilliance Records, the BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank proclaimed to “love it”, and immediately got on board, broadcasting their music to a global BBC audience.
Stateside, TWMTH recently caught the attention of the fresh Las Vegas based label Red Eye Transit, who is now releasing the band's first Ep “Still Life” and hosting their first tour in the US, including exclusive showcases in SXSW.
Creatively, TWMTH have begun dipping their feet in a vast variety of pop-cultural ponds, while still grounding their sound in love of their ghosts - a shared history of playing in gritty rockbands, steadily moving towards icy electro pop.
TWMTH started off by making music in Amsterdam in 2010 and, on the strength of their early work, were asked to perform for Nordic By Nature in Berlin - even before they had enough material for a full set. After releasing 2 7” singles on Brilliance Records, the Duo has been and touring Scandinavia and the rest of and Europe, fighting for attention in the old [strip?] bars of Berlin, among cool crowds of Hoxton, London and the desolate outskirts of the Norwegian wilds.
Their live act is becoming known for a catchy in-your-face attitude: C.Todnem of The 405 says "Raw vocals, electronic looping drum beats and catchy synth melodies makes me wanna catch the first flight to Hawaii".
After slowly expanding their style, with a special eye for old school hip hop, beat poetry, computer games, afro-beats and chillwave - all inspired by the Aloha spirit - they still maintain the punk asthetic and drown themselves in synthesizers. The soundtrack to childhood memories and dreams about a tomorrow that never comes...
C´mon, let´s dance like there's no today.
