Sandra Kolstad (Norway) lives in Berlin and Oslo. Her debut album CRUX (recorded and produced by Sandra Kolstad) was released on April 29, 2011.
Giving new life to synthesizers (analogue) and drum machines, Sandra Kolstad is an artist that fascinates and captures. File it under dark and dancy, explosive and extravagant.
She has seduced audiences with her strong live performances in countries as Norway, Sweden, France, Denmark and Germany and is confirmed to Øya Festival and Arvika Festival 2011 + more to come.
Sandra Kolstad is originally trained as a classical pianist and was a student of Wolfgang Plagge amongst others.
For reasons unknown, this album has only just arrived within my radar. But boy am I glad it did.
This is one of the best electronica albums I've heard in a while, proof that electronica lives in Norway. You have to check it out.
