“The song itself is about realising that I really can’t be anyone while being in a really dark time of my life. I can only be myself, and if that isn’t good enough for someone, then i need to move on, but in the song i’m still holding on to the idea of what she could be, because it’s hard and I don’t really want to leave, even when I have to.”

“The Anti-Terror Album’ is an alternative pop music record that I have written as a response to a clandestine governmental terror exercise that I got hold of and leaking through art and music.

“I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practise mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly.”
Purely sung in Norwegian, this is a dark and intense pop sound that builds up to be quite an epic experience.
