Norway's queen of electronic pop!

Sandra Kolstad makes electronic pop music that’s danceable, explosive and extravagant.
An established star in Norway, she’s playlist and national newspaper material on her home turf, and has often been described as “Norway’s queen of electronic pop”. She was nominated at Oslo’s by:Larm festival for a new internationally-breaking artist, and early responses to her new album (Nothing Lasts) Forever suggest this was as much a premonition as a prediction. Known for her highly visual performances, Kolstad is a classically trained pianist with big ambitions for music’s live potential; as well as her expressive, joyful dancing and swathed in kaleidescopic projected lights, as well as accompaniment from drummer Kyrre Bjørkås who masters the noble art of drumming standing up, and skwee producer Sprutbass who is playing bass with Sandra.
Kolstad’s live show is a tour-de-force that has seduced audiences across Europe, including at major festivals like Roskilde, Øya, Berlin Music Week and Slottsfjell, and at Roundhouse Rising and Ja Ja Ja in London Town.

She seems born for the stage, sparkling and spilling over with infectious kinetic energy.




Sandra, would you say that there is a special Northern sound?
-"It’s a question that I’ve given a lot of thoughts, because I think it’s really interesting. I used to answer that question with a “no”, but now that I am outside of Scandinavia, I can see that there are some characteristics about at least some parts of the Scandinavian music scene or the Northern music scene. And some features – both musically as well as visually. The aesthetics around the music and the style. So I think that at least some parts of the Scandinavian scene is quite characteristic."

And now I present you two albums of Sandra Kolstadt!

Comes in digipack. Track 10 noted (in credits) as "A psalm for Valerie Solanas and Sara Stridsberg". Recorded at Krims Krams Studio. Visual concept by Neue Kafé Barbara (Gunnhild Bakke, Annabeth Kolstø, Agnethe Erichsen). Photo of fluorite octahedron by Jiri Havran.
“Gravity is everything that pulls the human soul down. Everything that keeps us from being everything we could be. Gender, class, constraining norms and values, mental illness, injustice, poverty, religious conflicts, political structures…. Fear, that in all its different shapes drags us down, holds us down and away from freedom.” says Sandra Kolstad about her new album “Zero Gravity State Of Mind” Out since October 6th on Red Eye Transit.
Sandra Kolstad combines her passion for acoustic and electronic elements in an experimental musical universe, full of playfulness and imagination. Her highly visual performances seduce the audience and open up a world, where firm electronic beats, dreamy vocals and vivid instrumentals, challenge both ear and eye. From a young age Sandra Kolstad has been devoted to music. She started out as a classical piano student in Norway, but soon her main focus became composing music herself. After having travelled around countries like Cuba, India and Mongolia, Sandra moved to Berlin in 2009 and started working on her own songs, establishing her musical identity.

Sandra Kolstad's Interview!

...I always wanted to be like a shaman. Like entering this special state of mind. I think you don’t need huge light shows, I’m more about making an atmosphere…in one way or another. And that can happen in many ways...



Sandra Kolstad makes electronic pop music that's danceable, explosive and extravagant.
An established star in Norway, she's playlist and national newspaper
material on her home turf, and has often been described as"Norway's queen of
electronic pop". She was nominated at Oslo's by:Larm festival for a new
internationally-breaking artist, and early responses to her forthcoming
album (Nothing Lasts) Forever suggest this was as much a premonition than
prediction. Known for her highly visual performances, Kolstad is a classically
trained pianist with big ambitions for music’s live potential; as well as her
expressive, joyful dancing and swathed in kaleidescopic projected lights, as well
as accompaniment from noise musician Marck Fuck and long-standing
collaborator Francis Petter Eldh, a Swedish jazz musician and improvisor.
Kolstad's live show is a tour-de-force that has seduced audiences across Europe,
including at major festivals like Roskilde, Øya, Berlin Music Week and Slottsfjell,
and at Roundhouse Rising and Ja Ja Ja in London Town.
