Late august sees acclaimed electronica duo Frost playing a string of UK club gigs.


Frost were initially formed in 1997 in Tromsø, Northern Norway, with singer/songwriter Aggie Peterson and Norwegian Dub Disco entrepreneur DJ Rune Lindbæk at the core of the project. Together, and with the extended assistance of Torbjørn Brundtland (now Röyksopp) in addition to a few other hired hands, they produced the album 'Bedsit Theories' in 1998. The album did very well in Norway, and the single 'Clouds across the moon', a cover version of the Rah Band classic, achieved heavy rotation on MTV in the summer of 1998.

In 1999 Aggie and Rune released the single 'Endless Love', with remixes by Röyksopp and duo Illumination/Chilluminati – of which electrohead and long time Norwegian provider of electric funk, Per Martinsen (also of Mental Overdrive), was one half. This saw the beginning of a collaboration between Aggie and Per, and in 2001 they released the album “Melodica” together. Since then the pair have collaborated as Frost.

'Melodica' consisted of glitchy electropop and down-tempo airy songs, and received great reviews worldwide. The song 'Amygdala' was released on a double vinyl 12” single with a variation of remixes, and the 7” vinyl single 'Pharmacy'/'Half-whole' is still a sought-after gem.

Frost's latest album 'Love! Revolution!' is now available to international customers exclusively via mailorder from House of Telle and through digital outlets such as iTunes and e-music.
