For the past decade, Norway’s DATAROCK have melded indie dance, new wave, pop, and funk into a custom sound responsible for a steady stream of unforgettable tracks and performances. “Catcher in the Rye” is the band at their best, instantly memorable and insanely fun. The single takes their adventurous pop to the next level. The band’s new album is due out in March and they will be launching a world tour in support of “the most extravagant single in history,” so be sure to join in on the madness!

The Amplifetes are a brand new 4-piece band from Sweden. Being accomplished songwriters and producers on their own, the members have worked with names such as Kelis, Madonna, Grandmaster Flash and Peter Bjorn and John. While having occasionally crossed paths during the course of their careers, they have existed as a unit for about a year. The band think of themselves as a dreamteam collaboration of their influences – listing 60s Psychadelia, The Electric Light Orchestra, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, David Bowie and Chicago Trax Records House releases.
The highly addictive result can be heard in The Amplifetes debut single “It´s My Life
“, a spitting image of urban life and a happy three-part marriage between garage pop, electro and punk. It was featured recently in a promo campaign for Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli, starring a lightly dressed Milla Jovovich, creating quite a stir over Europe.
