About the artist

Since they first burst onto the scene with the release of their classic debut album Melody A.M back in 2001, Norwegian electronic music overlords Röyksopp have only released three additional studio albums.

We’re not going to stop making music, but the album format as such, this is the last thing from us.” Having now created five complete bodies of work, the pair feel like the future is open to being more experimental with how they share their music, be it with EPs, one-off singles or something more visually focused. “With Melody AM we felt like we established our own voice and take on electronic music.
