AM and the UV

"international pin-up waiting to happen" Dazed & Confused
"stunning vocals" Mark Doyle, HedKandi/JazzFM
"Karen Carpenter meets François K" Coda Magazine/France

...not a bad introduction to Anne Marie Almedal, the heart-breaking voice and sensual spotlight of Norwegian indie heroes Velvet Belly (Boilerhouse/RCA), the girl you’ve been in love with, but never met. Now joined forces with Anglo/arctic electronica pioneers Nicholas Sillitoe (DJ/producer behind Illumination, Chilluminati, Ultraviolet) and Ken Theodorsen (respected Tromsø sonic wizard, also of Ultraviolet fame) together at last...AM and The UV.

For this debut solo venture, AM and her cool collective promise an elysian bliss of pop cinematics, a sublime selection of addictive songs - written and performed by a confident artiste ready to make her strongest statement yet. Pop where it really should be, in a post-millennium haze of electronics chanson. the new true cool of Norway.

First song out of the Pandora’s box, "Everybody’s Girlfriend", featured as opening track on the "Way Out North" compilation, released with Jockey Slut Magazine. AM's bitter-sweet paean to the feminine, a lost highway ride into shimmering seduction, space-echo breakbeats, glockenspiel and reverb heaven.
