Four friends formed DATAROCK on a rainy afternoon under a tree on top of a mountain in Bergen, Norway. It was the first summer of a brand new millennium, and the boys were getting into the groove at an outdoor festival of electronic music. Inspired by the heat of the moment, the boys made a life changing decision and came rolling down the mountainside with a tablet of stone engraved with a single word - DATAROCK.

"...this band can nail any sound they want, cheekiness be damned"
"...a frothy elixir out of 1980s synth-pop, art-rock and new wave"
—New York Times
Don't be fooled by the tracksuits and ironic facial hair - these wacky Norwegian "new rave" dudes actually write ace songs...
"Irresistibly slinky new wave"
"...a hefty percentage of top tunes"
Catchy-as-hell brand of synth pop
"The ultimate 1980s homage"
As mischievous as a Scottish terrier trained to operate a spud gun
Smart casual really doesn't get any funkier than this
Datarock are really, really good
It makes for quite a party
