Soft as Snow
"The Norwegian duo Soft as Snow makes expansive electronic synthpop that pulls the listener down into a cavernous underground rave. Their singular sound can in part be attributed to Oda’s background in performance art and to Øystein’s drumming for various noise rock bands in Oslo’s underground scene.
On April 6th the duo released their debut full length ‘Deep Wave’ on Houndstooth. The album was created by Soft as Snow with additional mixing and production by WIFE of Tri Angle Records. Following the album is a surreal 3D-animated video directed by London based artist Conrad Pack, and two 8-bit-psychedelic videos directed by the duo."
"Deep Wave is an album that oscillates wildly between menace and beauty" Loud and Quiet
”The fractured, childlike vocals of Oda Egjar Starheim are an unsettling presence throughout, peaking on the shamanic analogue march of Pink Rushes” Mojo
”Electronic music pushed to the brink of collapse” The Wire
