“It’s a common misconception.
The popular view of Scandinavia is often a snowy wilderness, where the sun barely rises for nine months of the year. In reality, though, the area is a lush, green beauty spot where the sun rises frequently and often shines.
As if to prove those misconceptions correct, though, here comes Frost. The pop offshoot from Mental Overdrive, the duo’s latest project is inspired by the ghost town of Pyramida.
A former Russian mining settlement close to the Swedish border, the town was abandoned in the late 90s. Preserved almost perfectly by the cold, desolate landscape a series of ghost transmissions have found their way into the duo’s possession.
Frost – in reality Per Martinsen and Aggie Peterson – were stunned into making an album of their own. ‘Radiomagnetic’ comes across like a fractured, corroded transmission – all voices collapsing in on themselves, faltering synths and melodies which crack like ice.
Taken from the new album, ‘The Woods’ comes backed with a clip that matches the desolate beauty of the music.”
The new album, Radiomagnetic, is inspired by a very special story connecting Frost to the Arctic, through old family pictures thanks to a mysterious cassette.
It is a dream-come-true when Frost will perform live in the abandoned ghost-town of Pyramiden on September 1st. Frost will perform in one of the empty bulidings, filling it with music and projected photographs from when this Russian mining settlement was vibrant and alive.
