Like most other music bloggers and music sites that are going to the festival, I have also listed up a couple of bands and artists that I recommend you see. Also I hope that I get to see them as well. Instead of googling and Tidaling the different artists, I used the by:larm app. I know, it sounds like a commercial, but trust me it’s not. The app is connected to Spotify and have all the artists lined up – all I needed to do was to press play. These are the ones that caught my attention with only a few seconds of sound (in no particular order):
1 – VANT
This band is something that I’m looking forward to see. Only because they do look really cute. No seriously. Great music, I can’t wait to see them live.
2 – Bob Hund
Can’t miss the Swedish guys in Bob Hund. Legendary! Amazing that they are playing by:larm this year. Definitely a crowd-pleaser.
3 – Västerbron
This is my kind of music. Rock. Swedes. Thats all I need, really.
4 – Årabrot
Årabrot is a well-established band in my opinion. They won a Norwegian Grammy a few years back and they have worked with a bunch of great musicians. However, I’ve never seen them live. And now it’s about time. They are also from Haugesund – I was born there, I feel some connection.
5 – Faenskap
I saw a little bit of Oslo Faenskap when they played Granitt Rock last year. They were good. They’ve changed their name to Faenskap, whats wrong with Oslo?
6 – Tempel
YES! Give me more metal! If you like hard rock/metal this is the concert for you. Do not miss Tempel.
7 – Pil & Bue
Any band that names Placebo as an inspiration must be a good band in my opinion. Pil & Bue have also been the supporting act to El Caco’s tour these last weeks. Basically why i want to check them out.
8 – Heather
I heard a little bit of Heather on the by:larm-app. Now I want to hear more. Sounds promising.
9 – Virgin Suicide
Virgin Suicide is a band from Denmark. My first question is – are they inspired by the movie? Or the Beatles? Who cares, I love it. The music is really fun. Hopefully it will be just as great on stage.
10 – Skinny Days
Skinny Days is a Norwegian duo – thats all I know really. I need to balance the rock and metal with something like this. It’s catchy. Lets see how they are live.
Besides these then bands I would also like to see the Urørt Finale. I’m only one person so lets see how much I can manage. Would like to experience it all, but thats impossible.
See you next week!
