Today a new single by Anja Elena Viken is out on Tellé Records. Following the success of her hit “Klæssar deg ned” Viken follows up with the slightly more serious but equally catchy, tough and unique single “Gatekredibilitet”.

Chris Holm has been at the center of Bergen’s world renowned indie scene for years. As a member of Young Dreams, The Alexandria Quartet, Bloody Beach and Sondre Lerche’s band, Chris has been a part of many great albums, tracks, tours and moments in Norwegian music. Today, we are very proud to bring you his debut solo single “When I Die”, from his LP “Kilos”, set for release in fall 2012 on Tellé.

Sondre Lerche’s single now has a video by Mona Fastvold Lerche. Check out the clip and don’t miss out on Sondre at by:larm this year if you are in Oslo.
Stereogum said this of the video:
“Sondre Lerche’s new video for “When The River” is a pretty, soft-focus splicing of Super 8 film (from drummer David Heilman’s childhood) and Lerche performance footage shot by his wife, Mona. It’s a clip that underscores the heartsickness of nostalgia and the mellow sadness of Lerche’s music, all presented with vivid flecks of color and life. Though the Super 8 thing is pretty overdone at this point, it’s a nice reminder of that style’s effectiveness when thoughtfully employed.”
Jon Olav Nilsen og Gjengen med Nils Bech slipper ny singel: “Vinterkarusellen”
NRK P1’s mest spilte band i 2011 er tilbake med en ny singel, “Vinterkarusellen”. Denne gangen gjester vokalisten og performance kunstner Nils Bech. Dette er en så kalt “One off” singel, en liten gave til fansen mens de venter på John Olav Nilsen & Gjengen sitt tredje album som skal bli sluppet i september. John Olav Nilsen & Gjengen debuterte med låten “Diamanter og Kirsebær” på Tellé sitt underselskap Opplett tilbake i 2008, vi er stolte av at vi nå 4 år senere får muligheten til å slippe hva vi synes er en av John Olav Nilsen & Gjengen mest unike låter. En låt som virkelig skiller seg ut og nok en gang flytter grenser i norsk “gate”pop. Kontrasten mellom John Olav Nilsen & Nils Bech er styggvakker. Vi rett og slett elsker denne låten , og håper du vil gjøre det også!
