Soft As Snow
Soft as Snow are Oda Egjar Starheim and Øystein Monsen. Starheim is a Goldsmiths Art graduate who also works with performance, installation and photography, and Monsen, a noise rock drummer and video artist.
The dark electro-pop duo, who are now based in London, met a few years ago at party in Oslo. Their first collaboration happened some time later and was strangely initiated by one of Starheim’s art performances where she was screaming in the streets of Oslo and invited Monsen along to document it all.
With only 3 tracks to their name, the duo claim to be influenced by the “dark Scandinavian mountains, old techno and weird pop”.
If Björk and The Prodigy had a love a child, this would be it…and it’s beautiful!
They are presently focusing on playing live shows and begin a small tour this October, which includes festivals in Oslo and Barcelona, and concerts in Madrid and Berlin. The live shows kick off at Power Lunches in Dalston, London, on 9 October.
Sounds like: Björk, Purity Ring, Death Rattle, Keep Shelly in Athens, The Prodigy
