Tôg proves that Norway is one of the world’s major hotbeds of futuristic disco. In the grand tradition of Lindstrøm and Todd Terje, Tôg has been unleashing their Nordic sensibilities and synthesizer sweetness to enrapture hip-shaking audiences from Oslo to Austin, from SXSW to Roskilde Festival. After two radio hits in their native country, local heroes Tôg is back with a fresh slab of slasher flick-tinted space boogie intended for the eternal party.

For their latest release, Feiring, Tôg enlisted the mixing skills of LCD Soundsystem collaborator and DFA mainstay Eric Broucek to make 45 minutes of bangers. Tôg’s songwriter and producer Lars Christian dug deep into his record collection, finding inspiration in the good vibes of Jai Paul and Italo Disco, Nile Rodgers and Chicago House. To help with the song writing process, Tôg brought in Ådne Meisfjord from 120 Days and the 4AD-signed Norwegian band, Serena-Maneesh, Marcus Forsgren The Lionheart Brothers and Nick Terry (Klaxons, The Libertines, Simian Mobile Disco, Serena Maneesh).

  The group’s leader claims that he “likes making cheesy music cool,” because he knows that disco and funk have as much heart as they do groove. Sung in his native tongue, Olsen’s lyrics brim with sincerity and optimism as he contemplates eternity and discovering new love after the party. Tracks from Feiring are being remixed by Prins Thomas, Skatebård, Mathias Stubø/Proviant Audio and Numusic’s very own Tarjei Nygård.

Tôg which means ‘jerk’, are all but jerky. The title of their 2nd album, translates to ‘Party‘ and it’s not called that for no reason.
For those who have heard the new material it is apparently a shameless disco fest that awaits us.
