Prepare for invasion - the Norwegians are coming. The Norse Vikings once ruled vast swathes of the world, and now their ancestors look set to follow suit. Leading the charge - meet Bendik. Hear the beautiful new track 'Siste Gang' on Gigwise first below. 

The Goddess Susanne Sundfor released one of the best albums of the year, and then came Aurora, Slutface and Farao with their inescapable Norse charms. Bendik, however, offer something like no other. 

As captivating as her appearance suggests, Bendik specialises in that shimmering dreampop that seems to flow from Norway like so much water into the Fjords. Here we have an aching melancholy met an ambitious post-rock backing, and a singer who gives her absolute all to her performance. All of that grace, promise and romance comes by the bucketload in the beautiful new 'Siste Gang'. Wrap your ears around this pure electro-pop gem, and prepare to fall in love.

Having been nominated as Live Act of the Year at the P3 Gold Awards, her second record No Gaar Det Over gained massive critical acclaim culminating in a nomination for a Norwegian Grammy last year. With a backing band including members of Pantha Du Prince’s Bell Orchestre and LOVELOVELOVE the songs get a versatility and depth that includes influences of Nordic-jazz, shoegaze and even metal.

Her third record is currently being recorded with help from co-producer Kristoffer Bonsaksen (Emilie Nicolaas, Highasakite) and marks her most beautiful and intimate work to date. Now it's time for the rest of the world to crumble at her knees.
