We’ve recently been exposed to quite a bit of music coming out from Norway. Most of it, however, leaned towards the folk, Americana, and orchestral pop genres. Philco Fiction, though, are an electro-pop trio, whose sound resonates of the pop music coming out of the United States and United Kingdom. The music is sultry. The music and beats are subtle. It’s not necessarily pop music meant to dance to but rather to move people emotionally.
Philco Fiction’s music is a part of the new wave in indie pop, one that doesn’t pander to the faint of heart but rather has an aggressiveness to it. “June 17”, is a perfect example of this movement. It’s cool, calm, and chilling yet sung with an edge. “Bodies”, which Philco Fiction released back in April, is likewise another sultry but heavy pop tune. Don’t expect Katy Perry-style sounds or lyrics, but instead expect to hear something much more meaningful.
With these two releases, we anticipate that Philco Fiction will be releasing an album (EP or LP) in the near future or maybe they’ll continue to tease us as they work to further perfect their sound.
Philco Fiction are Turid Alida Solberg; Bjarne Chr. B.B. Gustavsen; and Andreas Lønmo Knudsrød.
You can hear “June 17” on the June 26th Edition of the Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist featuring new music from around the world.
