  Röyksopp (webpic)
by diocletianvs

They are Norwegian duo coming from Tromso, growing surrounded by glacial imagery, Northern Lights and light summers. Torbjorn Brundtland and Svein Berge managed to capture the atmosphere of Norwegian landscapes in their music so well that once you hear their album Melody AM you'll just have to listen and listen all over again.

I discovered Röyksopp when one friend gave me their CD, months after I have returned from Norway. But once their CD landed into my CD player it didn't get out of it for weeks. Their music is an excellent reminder of Norwegian landscapes, summer "nights" with almost no darkness at all, of Norwegian shyness, way of life and their way of loving.

Fabulous atmosphere, one can listen to it on and on and always find new details to enjoy.

And get addicted to it.
Oh yes, you can get Röyksopp addicted very easy.
