Camp-disco-synth-pop to a venue near you

Norwegian duo Datarock, whose music is described as uproariously sleazy and sexually ambiguous, will return to the UK with a tour in November.

The duo consists of Fredrik Saroea on vocals, guitars, drums and keyboards, and Ketil Mosnes on bass, programming, keyboards as well as backing vocals. The boys are from Bergen, the very same city that in recent years has produced international success stories such as Kings of Convenience and Annie, who have both performed in London this autumn.

Datarock recently released their second album "Red" to enthustiastic reviews from the music world. As New York Times claimed, Datarock's second album is "a frothy elixir out of 1980s synth-pop, art-rock and new wave".

The duo take their inspiration from bands like Devo, Talking Heads and the Happy Mondays, and have a genuine DIY attitude; they produce all their music themselves as well as their artwork and website. Through their energetic and unique live performances, which started in 2000, Datarock caught people’s imagination instantly, and not just in Norway. So far, they have performed 650 concerts in more than 30 countries across the globe.
