 About the artists:

DATAROCK (NO)
 

"a frothy elixir out of 1980s synth-pop, art-rock and new wave" - The New York Times

Four friends formed
DATAROCK on a rainy afternoon under a tree on top of a mountain in Bergen, Norway. It was the first summer of a brand new millennium, and the boys were getting into the groove at an outdoor festival of new electronic music. Inspired by the heat of the moment, the boys made a life changing decision and came rolling down the mountainside with a tablet of stone in their hands, engraved with a single word - DATAROCK.

DATAROCK is one of Norway's most internationally active & acclaimed bands. Their 1000 shows in 36 countries - all in red tracksuit - include 20 tours in the US, 8 tours in Australia, and festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival, Summer Sonic, Hurricane, Roskilde and Sónar.

Their debut came in as #36 on NME's albums of the year, 'Computer Camp Love' made #88 on Rolling Stone Magazine's songs of the year - plus #12 on Australia's Hottest 100 - Spin Magazine listed 'See What I Care' as an "essential download of the summer", their second album 'RED' was critic's choice of the week in NY Times - both their first albums are critically acclaimed across the world and were nominated for Norwegian Grammies.

DATAROCK's music has further on been featured in international campaigns for brands like Google, Apple, Microsoft and Coca Cola. In addition, their tracks are featured in a vast number of TV series, films and ads across the world (including Samsung, RyanAir, Virgin Mobile and commissioned work for Disney) and in an unprecedented number of major video games such as Fifa, Sims & Need For Speed.

On March 9 they’ve released their heavily anticipated third studio album - 'Face the Brutality‘ - listen here...
 


 
HUGO HELMIG (DK)
 
 
 
The last year has been very exciting for the young debutant Hugo Helmig. After topping the Danish charts, he has now reached Top 3 in one of the world's largest music markets – Germany. The German radio stations have fallen in love with the only 19-year-old Danish debutant. Over the past two months his song ‘Please Don’t Lie’ has climbed the German airplay chart, where it has now reached a third place. The song has been played over 2,000 times a week by approx. 100 different German radio stations.

The huge German success has come as a surprise for the talented singer and songwriter: "I was hoping that the song would help me get started Denmark. But I hadn’t in my wildest fantasy dreamt of this international breakthrough would happen."

The Danish pop singer is very excited about announcing first concerts in Germany and he can’t wait to meet his German fans. Hugo Helmig and his band will visit Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin and Munich in the beginning of May.

Hugo Helmig collects his inspiration from singer songwriters like Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, and the Danish Press have drawn comparison to Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes. Hugo’s debut single ‘Please Don’t Lie’ is a vigorous pop song about toning down the self-presentation on social media. Hugo explains:

“Everyone’s so eager to stage this picture perfect life on social media, but of course nobody’s perfect. It’s such a shame that it’s the norm for most people to present themselves in this superhuman way. ‘Please Don’t Lie’ is a kind reminder to everybody – and first and foremost myself.”

 


AMANDA MAIR (SE)
 
 
“The best Kate Bush style synth pop since Bat For Lashes” Aftonbladet  

Amanda Mair is back! The five tracks strong new EP “To The Moon” continues where the hyped debut album left us. At the same time everything feels brand new. Amanda has evolved during the four years that’s passed since her debut – both as an artist and as a songwriter, but also as a person. Everything that felt promising back then has now turned into a solid completeness. The atmospheric and rather dark EP “To The Moon” simply opens the door to a another dimension of Amanda Mair. 

Amanda Mair is the girl from Stockholm who, while starting upper second school, was discovered by the record label Labrador – without even recorded any demo tapes. Just a year later she was an internationally praised artist and did shows throughout the world. The self-titled album, including the singles “House” and “Doubt”, got the tastemakers at Washington Post and The Guardian to namedrop everything from Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac to Lykke Li, Bat For Lashes and Feist in order to describe Amanda’s perfectly crafted pop songs.


 


Auður
 (IS)

 
 "Rising R&B star" - The Line Of Best Fit

Auður creates slick and sensual music with electronic take on R&B and explores the themes of isolation and longing with his personal lyrics. He connects deeply with his music and interprets the music on stage with his unique movements, visuals and exceptional guitar riffs.

He followed in the footsteps of Of Monsters and Men, Sigur Rós and Kaleo when he won the newcomer of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2016. Since then he released his debut album “Alone” that was nominated as the Album of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2017. There he was also nominated for singer of the year and also nominated for the video of the year and song of the year with “I’d Love” his single that he releases days before Airwaves 2017 and won both for song and video of the year.

His past adventures includes opening up for Post Malone, touring Germany and Austria and traveled all over the world from Japan to Norway, writing and producing. He is now with planned festivals in Germany and the UK, playing this year The Great Escape along with JAJAJA performances in London and Berlin and other multiple performances coming up in Iceland and Europe.
