Norwegian duo Royksopp is back and already making a triumphant return with 2nd album and equally excellent follow-up to debut, “Melody AM,” an album by the name of “The Understanding.”
The first single to be taken from the album, the dreamy “Only This Moment” sets the scene for a varied album of surreal humour, energetic electro, and haunting sounds, and has already seen the electronic singer-songwriters experience great success in their return to the airwaves and charts. Now with this success, and following their previous successful tours with Basement Jaxx and Moby and an impressive performance at the Isle of Wight's Bestival, Torbjorn Brundtland and Svein Berge are about to embark upon a full UK tour.
Catch them and their exciting new material, not to mention old favourites (think Poor Leno and Eple) in a town near you soon.
