"The Matinee September 27th"

RIYL: Marika Hackman, Meadowlark, Sinead O’Connor


There has been a lot of written about the music coming out of Norway over the past two weeks. For our part, at least two Norwegian artists are featured weekly. More evidence of the Scandinavian country’s burgeoning music scene is the arrival of Tuvaband.

Originally started off as the bedroom project of Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser, the group has now expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Simon Would. The duo released two songs late last week, one of which is “(It’s Not About) Running”. The song is minimalist with just Marschhäuser’s stunning vocals and Would’s dissonant guitars. The combination yields a product that is intimate, haunting, and absolutely enchanting. The song is like a fairy tale, where for a brief moment you got lost in this beautiful world created by this young Norwegian duo. - The Revue, Ben Yung

"28 September 2016"

Tuvaband are a Norwegian/English duo consisting of Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser and Simon Would. Tuvaband was originally formed as a one-woman-band in Tuva’s bedroom, behind shut doors when nobody was home. Tuvaband moved out to the living room in the summer 2014 when Simon joined, and Tuvaband became established.

Since then they have been playing gigs and small festivals across Oslo. This year they have collaborated with Jonas Kjølstad/At the Loft Records, with focus on the recording of their music.

The duo have run up 170,000 plays on their debut single on Spotify and were included in the International New Music Friday playlist. Things are looking very good indeed.

After the release of their debut double single 22.09.16 Tuvaband will start working on their EP before doing a tour in Europe 2017. - Purple Melon Music

"DEBUT RELEASE! Tuvaband - double single...'Unknown / Running'"

One of the greatest privileges of editing this website is receiving a submission through from an artist or band sending out their debut release, hearing a beautiful new track for the first time and being able to share it. And we're delighted to do that today with Tuvaband, who released their debut double single just yesterday The Norwegian / English duo Tuvaband consisting of Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser and Simon Would was originally simply a one woman project, but has now developed through the addition of their 2nd member, and now through a recording collaboration with Jonas Kjølstad / At the Loft Records.

The results are really impressive and original too. We love our lo-fi sounds at NMR (23:23 being the most obvious example), but Tuvaband offer something else, with a dreamy intensity in the vocals, stripped back instrumentation and the overall sound is really captivating. The more I listen to opening track 'Unknown', the more I'm able to hear and appreciate the beautiful subtleties in the guitar and piano lines, and Tuva's voice is stunning albeit fairly melancholy. The 2nd track ' (It’s Not About) Running' has this lovely understated melody, and there's a real achievement here in creating something which sounds so complete with such a limited use of accompanying instruments.

Anyway enough telling you how good it is, please take a listen and give this chance to grow on you... :


Whether Tuvaband will be able to maintain such intensity in any longer track releases remains to be seen, but this is a gorgeous debut from the band and we look forward to updating you on their next releases. - Nordic Music Review


Still working on that hot first release.
