6/6 “Stylistically strong, electronic pop elegance… The musical year of 2014 will definitely be a year when we’ll be bowing down a lot to Bow To Each Other”, Gaffa
5/6 “This year’s first big Norwegian album highlight… Bow To Each Other translate their experiences into first-class music” – VG
5/6 “’The Urge Drums’ has proven to be a gorgeous and fittingly enigmatic album that immediately grabs hold… it’s easy to get carried away and get lyrical.” – Dagbladet
5/6 “Bow down to Bow To Each Other! Bow To Each Other release their first record, where Susanne Sundfør also makes her debut as a producer. The result is an album that oozes of musicality.” – Dagsavisen
5/6 “The producer’s own material is becomingly raven black, but Bow To Each Other is at times warmer and closer in their sound, without taking away from this duo’s appeal. Absolutely not.” – Bergensavisen
5/6 “Strong lyrics and characteristic, beautiful vocal harmonies hit every nerve, grabs hold and remains for a long time.” – Aftenposten
5/6 “Bittersweet harmonies on a strong debut album.” – Bergens Tidende
5/6 “Overall, the record is brimming with good taste and elegant twists. From the completely toned-down to the danceable, from the clear idea into the chaos, from loneliness to togetherness. This is the universal coming-out-record and coming into something else altogether. I can barely wait for what’s next.” – Klassekampen
8/10 “The Urge Drums is the beginning of something big. Bow To Each Other have done an excellent job in developing their own sound, which is profoundly exciting and mysterious.” – Musikknyheter.no
“Norwegian-Canadian strike of gold…the songs presented by Bow To Each Other shows brilliant pop structure.” – Dagens Næringsliv -

Bio

Bow To Each Other is a new Norwegian-Canadian indie pop duo.

Their debut album The Urge Drums is produced by none other than Susanne Sundfr and the first taste from the album, the single Darkness, was immediately playlisted on Norwegian state-owned radio station NRK P3. The album has now gotten fantastic reviews in Norway, so be sure to check it out.

Bow To Each Other consists of Gunhild Ramsay Kristoffersen from Karmy, Norway, and Megan Kovacs from Toronto, Canada, both based in Oslo. Megan is a songwriter, keyboardist and vocalist, while Gunhild is an arranger, programmer, keyboardist and vocalist. The band was formed when the two moved to Norway in 2010 after having lived in Liverpool for several years, where they both studied at LIPA.

The Urge Drums consists of 10 tracks, all written by the band themselves. Bow To Each Others music explores soundscapes inspired by electronic, hip-hop, sacramental choral singing and 90s pop music. The lyrics are inspired by major upheavals in life, like moving to a new country with all the changes it entails, foreign language and new impulses. Times when you start doubting something youve always considered to be true.

The lyrics themes are mostly based around religion and sexuality. Megan and Gunhild are a married couple, they have both grown up in religious families, and experienced blessings and curses of coming out as gay.

The Urge Drums is Susanne Sundfrs debut as a producer. Lars Horntveth (Jaga Jazzist) plays various wind instruments, and Gard Nilssen (Bushmans Revenge) plays the drums. Jrgen Tren did the mixing of the album. It is recorded in Susanne Sundfrs own studio, Lady Lazarus, in addition to Lars Horntveths studio, Pooka Studio.
