Give a couple of farmhands some guitars and synths, and they make sweet, sweet indie pop? Sometimes things really are that simple. This is the band that has managed to find the perfect pop formula on their first attempt – what other bands spend years trying to figure out.
This duo, consisting of Hans Thomas Kiær /Kjaer/ and Bjørn Tveit /Tvait/ might not have been extremely productive since they started in 2009, but what they have to offer is pure star spangled pop heaven. «So Bright» has been a hit on Norwegian radio, and the debut album is on its way.
This isn’t music just for the sake of music; it’s the reason for it in its most pure and obvious way. It was created and nurtured in a barn in Drammen – the home of Alfred the bull. The significance of Alfred is probably as overstated as it’s understated.
Even after their second gig ever the rave reviews started coming in, and the band quickly became the band to watch out for in 2012. This one came in after Alfred Hall supported Wolf Gang in Oslo:
«… The most refreshing performance I have seen and heard from a Norwegian band in ages… Such beautiful pop music is hard to come by.» – Øyvind Rones, GAFFA
