Signed to Cascine on the strength of a hometown show in Bergen, Softcore untd. are one of the most unclassifiable acts we’ve heard in a while. Featuring members of Sushi x Kobe (Emir Hindic), FAKETHIAS (Mathias Humlen), and Verdensrommet (Andreas Høvset, Vetle Junker), the quartet somehow manages to mix hip-hop, house, pop, and glimmers of the music that made Norway an epicenter of extreme music in the ’90s.
“We try to make something new every time we’re together,” explains Junker. “How a track gets made varies. Sometimes it’s a lyric, sometimes it’s a chord, sometimes a melody. Despite the starting point, we always have a clear idea of what Softcore untd. is at a fundamental level.”
