Band of Gold

With their self-titled debut album, the Oslo duo Band of Gold really hit gold. The superlatives, recognition and hype they have received is utterly justified.

The album was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy, and at this year's by:Larm Festival they received the coveted Nordic Music Prize in competition with 11 Nordic bands and artists.

Since 2012, the duo consisting of vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Nina Elisabeth Mortvedt and BigBang/Elephant9 bassist Nicolai Hængsle Eilertsen have made music together, based on Mortvedt’s solo work.

In the studio, they collaborated with renowned musicians like Dungen guitarist Reine Fiske, Jaga Jazzist-multi-instrumentalist Lars Horntveth, and Motorpsycho drummer Kenneth Kapstad, to name a few.

Their sound is characterized by being musically retrospective, but with a contemporary flair that made them a Norwegian pop sensation of 2015.
