For Fans Of: Brian Eno, Zola Jesus, MGMT, Blonde Redhead, Cocteau Twins. Harrys Gym's new single premiered on NME.com last week and it will be released on a 7" by Sonic Cathedral in January // “Harrys Gym possess an elegance that betrays their toe-curling name and conjure the kind of hypnotic, billowing, electro-rock, it seems only Scandinavians can” Clash Magazine (live review from Standon Calling) // This release in May 2010 had earned them a “New Band Of The Day” in Guardian and heaped with praise from the likes of Drowned in Sound, Uncut and Musicweek amongst others. It also saw Harry’s Gym sign to major label Universal (Norway) for their follow up, quite an achievement for a “difficult” pop band. In addition to touring the album in the UK, Harry’s Gym managed to captivate audiences at festivals such as Øya, Roskilde, Eurosonic, Great Escape, Iceland Airwaves and Culture Collide in Los Angeles. For their follow-up, Harry’s Gym chose to work with up and coming British producer James Rutledge, who has remixed and worked with the likes of Fever Ray, Four Tet, Kevin Shields ++. Rutledge and vocalist/songwriter Anne Lise Frøkedal, seemed to bond at once over the phone from Oslo to London where they discussed Vashti Bunyan, folk music and the crossover between programming and running naked in the forest. Not to mention the pair’s fondness for salty licorice. Together they spent hours sending ideas back and forth from Oslo to London before James traveled to Oslo. It was in Harry’s Gym´s own studio where they laid down the majority of the tracks for the album, before traveling to London to mix the material in the psychedelic atmosphere of Strongroom Studios, where the mixes were put down by Jimmy Robertson (Big Pink, Florence & The Machine, Klaxons). On the recording process, Frøkedal comments “it was nice and refreshing to have so many ideas in the room all of the time and to have James somewhat become a fifth member of the band”. Harrry’s Gym release their sophomore album, “What Was Ours Cant Be Yours” on the new Oslo-based label Splendour in the UK and mainland Europe this February.
