The electropop duo Snö from Tromsø is a fresh addition to the pop scene in northern Norway. The two talented guys from Tromsø draw inspiration from the city’s proud electronic music tradition and ride the wave of northern Norwegian pop that has swept the country in recent years.
On October 7, 2016, they released the single “Krig”, which really put Snö on the map. “Krig” debuted as the “Song of the Week” on P3, and was played in every program on the channel for a whole week. They were also named “Ukas Urørt” (Unsigned Artist of the Week) and featured on P1’s B-list.
With lyrics about life, death, love, and the sea, Martin Hotvedt and Hallvar Agersborg aim to create energetic pop music with substance. The band has been around since 2014 and has performed at events like RakettNatt Klubb in 2015, Rock mot Rus, Trænafestivalen, and P3-aksjonen in 2016. On December 2, 2016, they held their first independent concert at Studentsamfunnet Driv in Tromsø, and the concert was sold out in advance.
In 2022, they made a comeback with the song “Lofoten i sommer” (Lofoten in Summer), which received recognition on NRK P1 and the Spotify playlist “Sommersol” (Summer Sun). They are now ready to release a series of singles before their debut album comes out in spring 2024.
