14 New Musical Gems For by:Larm 2020

January 21 2020

A Nordic blast with a shade of Colombia

All of a sudden, here we are: 2020. It’s barely a month left until the by:Larm adventure begins once more on February 27-29th, for the 23rd time. With the pace picking up, we’re adding 14 new acts to the program, adding even more nuances to an already immense palette of sound.

Soon, very soon, we’ll have the full schedule ready for you too. But now, let’s dive in and listen to:

Athletic Progression (DK): A Danish instrumental trio, taking cues from Herbie Hancock and Flying Lotus while crafting an instantly catchy sound of their own.

Blondage (DK): Blondage has been making waves in Nordic music for a while already, but in 2020, Pernille Smith-Siversen’s project is better than ever.

ela minus (CO): Signed to Domino Records, this former hardcore drummer from Bogotá, Colombia is now one of the foremost electronic analogists of our time.

Goss (DK): MØ-collaborator Goss is one to watch for genre-meshing pop with a creative twist.

Isak Danielson (SE): With over 48 million streams, Swedish Isak Danielson has made quite the mark on Scandinavian music already, but is coming to by:Larm to claim it all.

Ka2 (NO): Inspired by psychedelic rock, disco and electronic music, Bergen act Ka2 is a garantist for getting the party started.

Kantona (NO): Heavy hitting 808 drums, noisy guitars and silky smooth crooning in the Sørreisa dialect.

LÖV (NO): A a new project consisting of Marte Eberson, Øystein Skar and vocalist Martin Halla, with four strong singles so far.

Nicole Sabouné (SE): Dramatic, catchy and bitter sweet darkness from a post-punker-turned-vulnerable.

NYRST (IS): Icelandic metal with a penchant for old horror literature and the cosmic. Mystical and haunting.

SKAAR (NO): A new Norwegian name in pop, and definitely one to watch. With songs featuring on Netflix series and national radio, SKAAR is here to stay.

Spurv (NO): Oslo’s Spurv has become of the big new names in international post-rock, through exceptional live shows and the universally acclaimed album Myra.

St. Valentine (NO): A side project from Ulrik Lund of Lemaître fame, here Lund is moving in a lyrically oriented, personal and no-filter approach to electronica.

Svalbard (UK): Hard-hitting! That’s the word for Svalbard and their distinctive blend of euphoric black metal, post-rock and d-beat.
