The duo Mmm from Oslo, Norway plays lovely electropopmusic. Electro? Pop? Music? No, not in a Robyn vs Röyksopp-kind-of-way. Lean back and picture yourself on a beach on a beautiful summer day. If you add the Nordic coolness and some extremely catchy tunes, you have Mmm in a nutshell. You have to catch this act, my friend. If you like the movie mystic of David Lynch and the music of Kate Bush at the same time, do yourself a favour: Check out Mmm.

Diamond Club presents Bow To Each Other – Darling (DC#6)

November 22, 2012BTEO

Based out of Oslo, Norway Bow To Each Other are Norwegian Gunhild Kristoffersen and Canadian Megan Kovacs – a pop duo whose music is both compelling and alluring.

After meeting and spending several years in Liverpool, UK, playing in various projects and studying, Bow To Each other is a project born out of collective song writing ideas and their move back to Norway.

Drawing inspiration from the 80’s synth pop movement and 90’s film music, as well as taking inspiration from artists like Sufjan Stevens, Kate Bush, Bon Iver and Robyn, Bow To Each Other create music with an ethereal quality; filled with melodic and emotional significance. A sound that harnesses a chilled-out synth lead approach that in spite of it’s melancholy indicates a feeling of hope and light.

Releasing their first EP, ‘I Don’t Hear All The Noise’ in December 2012, the duo have spent the past year touring with rising Norway starlet Susanne Sundfør. Megan and Gunhild are now preparing to release their UK debut in the form of the single ‘Darling’ on November 22nd, before heading back to Norway to play 2013’s by:larm festival and prepping to release their new album later on in 2013.
