With less than two months left before kick-off, by:Larm adds nine new acts to 2015 line-up.
This week, by:Larm added an additional nine acts to the music industry convention/showcase festival’s already strong 2015 line-up.
Norwegian acts included in this week’s artist launch includes Carl Louis and Carnival Kids.
Adding to an already strong roster of international acts, Hey Elbow (SE), Pretty Vicious (WA), Rae Morris (UK), S!VAS (DK), Sylvan Esso (US), Ukendt Kunstner (DK) and Västerbron (SE) bolster by:Larm’s new focus; it’s International Feel.
Part of Norway’s blossoming EDM scene, Carl Louis founded highly successful duo CLMD, touring the world performing for crowds of thousands and getting playlisted by the likes of BBC1 and SiriusXM. Multiple singles also went platinum. For2014, Carl Louis has gone solo, and is set to follow a more organic and transgressive electronica vein with his new output.
Complex and visceral, Carnival Kids strike a perfect balance between depth and accessibility, marking out this Anglo-Norwegian four-piece as ones to watch. Describing themselves as “heavy but eclectic, with a punk vibe”, the band draws on musical influences including At The Drive-In, Biffy Clyro, Refused and Botch. Despite only releasing three singles to date, the group has gained a solid following at home and abroad.
