It hasn't taken long for Norway's Sløtface to set the agenda. Every opportunity they get, the fire-starting four piece bring fearlessness and defiance to the table, fusing a pop-punk aesthetic with something new. It begins with the name turning heads, but the songs go several steps further. We're looking at a band here to stay.

Formed in 2012, the group started when vocalist Haley Shea and guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad began writing songs together, some of which form the singles they'll be releasing in 2016. Tor-Arne previously played with drummer Halvard Skeie Wiencke in a hardcore band. The latter took some convincing to join Sløtface, but "he enjoyed it – so he continued playing!"

Chances are Halvard spotted something different with Sløtface, completed by bassist Lasse Lokøy. This wasn't just another band. With every move they make, they look to spin conventions on their head. Haley fronts forceful, firework-spitting punk with the confidence of someone several records in. In fact, everything these four sport is schooled in a swagger that you can't teach. "We love good pop songs, so we always try to write them," stats Tor-Arne. "We don't like droney, seven-minute songs. We'd rather listen to Robyn than prog.

A debut album – due out in early 2017 – is already taking shape, although it’s in its very initial stages. Early sessions took place in November 2015 at the isolated Ocean Sound studios, Norway. If Sløtface ever needed a catalyst in providing more fuel to their fire, a window’s view of the violent North Sea (“crazy waves, crashing all the time”) did exactly that. “We’re still working out what we want to put on there,” admits Haley. “We want to show people a little bit more. We want to be a band that reinvents itself.” Across the singles released so far, the group already showcase intent to switch things up when they please. Don’t expect reinvention to be limited between albums. A dozen different sides of Sløtface could be exposed across this debut.

'Meet DYAN. The buzzy new synth pop act, comprised of film composer duo Alexis & Sam (a.k.a Alexis Marsh and Samuel Jones) and Dan Dorff Jr., has been steadily on the rise since their singles "Days Upon Days" and "Looking for Knives" first lit up the hype machine in recent months.

The duo have worked on the project since 2012, with Marsh writing all of the songs and co-producing alongside Jones. They teamed up with Dorff, who was part of Jim James' solo band and also appeared on Ray Lamontagne’s Ouroboros, in the final stages of recording at La La Land Studio in Louisville, KY.' --Billboard
