Smerz - Believer
Norwegian rave-pop duo Smerz creates an utterly original and surreal music universe. Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg alter between sonic touchstones from their youth such as musicals and classical music and swirling, trance-indebted synth lines, experimental hip-hop and R&B-tinged vocals.
Acoustic and digital music
Accompanied by strings and piano, Smerz presents their debut album Believer, released on the renowned British label XL Recordings. Through the use of string and harp samples, the duo creates a symphonic sound that resides in a new place, somewhere between acoustic and digital music.
