Red Eye Transit is an independent DIY record label in Austin, TX with focus on music, art, family, community and friendship.
Following the tradition of acts like Lindstrøm, Todd Terje and Røyksopp, Tôg proves Norway’s strength for futuristic disco. After several radio hits in their home country Norway, Tôg are now back with their new album ‘Feiring’. For which the band enlisted the mixing skills of LCD Soundsystem collaborator and DFA mainstay Eric Broucek to make 45 minutes of bangers just like this one called Av Hengslene – deeply inspired by the good vibes of Jai Paul and Italo Disco, Nile Rodgers and Chicago House. To help with the songwriting process, Tôg brought in Ådne Meisfjord of the 4AD-signed Norwegian band Serena-Maneesh “to make cheesy music cool” and also “because disco and funk have as much heart as they do groove”. Feiring contains remixes by other Norwegian artists such as Prins Thomas, Skatebård, Mathias Stubø/Proviant Audio and Tarjei Nygård and will be released very soon.
No Fear of Pop “The Norwegian disco pop (one-man) outfit Tôg is back after the release of his excellent single “Maridalen” last year, a track that unfortunately most music sites decides to sleep on. Then again, it seems like “Av Hengslene” has that extra touch that “Maridalen” might have lacked in the first place, and I’m not just talking about the incredibly catchy synth line — it sounds ‘Swedish’, and that my friends, is a huge compliment to Norwegian pop music. Balearic disco references aside, this could totally be Norway’s reply to The Tough Alliance or Delorean, if you ask me.”
Last year Dinner appeared in the realistic daylight with his EP Girl glued to several weird and legendary shows around Europe. After all this occult magic, Dinner spent the last months to work on his new EP which will be released very very soon. We don’t know if his new songs are still about girls, destruction, and the divine feminine but they will be embed in a sound of euro-ice, Berlin-warmth and chaos magic. Most of us will be reminded of Joy Division and John Maus, we’ll be hearing echoes of Nico-ish phrasings coming together with Eno-esque melody-lines and occasional kraut-like motifs – defining a new image of a pop idol.
nothingbuthopeandpassion “Whether he is collaborating with others, discovering his singing voice, exploring the” weird little pathways “of LA, Dinner is Certainly bringing some to the table that we’ve never tried before.”
No Fear Of Pop “Danish artist Anders Rhedin, who’s at the heart of new project Dinner, sounds exactly like the Hybrid between Southern California’s weirdo underground pop scene and the bright and shiny tones of Scandinavian glory did you’ve always been waiting for.”
For a couple of years now, the Norwegian duo have been carving out their distinct line of chill wave electro, coupled with raw punk attitude. After slowly expanding their style with a special eye for old school hip hop, beat poetry, computer games, afro-beats and chillwave – all inspired by the Aloha spirit – they still maintain the punk aesthetic and drown themselves in synthesizers. The soundtrack to childhood memories and dreams about tomorrow that never comes. Stateside, TWMTH recently caught the attention of the fresh Austin, TX based label Red Eye Transit Records, who is now releasing the band’s first EP “ Still Life” and hosting their first tour in the US, including extensive showcases during SXSW.
Drowned in Sound “Norwegian duo Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii push the venue’s PA to full, playing beefed-up electropop with ribcage-moving bass and a bopping and inspiringly energetic lead singer who must’ve had an afternoon nap. She must have. But with what they offer, she is not the only one dancing.”
The 405 “Raw vocals, electronic looping drum beats and catchy synth melodies makes me wanna catch the first flight to Hawaii.”
