Frost gets approved by CMU, who reckon ‘Radiomagnetic’ is up against iamamiwhoami and Visions Of Trees for best cold electronic pop album of the year: http://www.thecmuwebsite.com/article/approved-frost-something-new/
Today the single, “Something New” is available from iTunes, Juno, Beatport and other digital outlets. The single includes “Something New” in two different versions + a deep and atmospheric remix by Le Petit Garcon.
The music video for this song is already viewed more than 30.000 times here – if you haven’t seen it, prepare to take 8 minutes to watch the ghost-radio hunter, filmed in Pyramiden, Spitsbergen. Film by Carl Critical.
Chasing those radio signals. Ghost town of Pyramiden.

“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.”
Thanks to Perez Hilton for posting the Parade video on his Perez TV site:
We are going to work with talented Carl Christian Lein Størmer, from Badlands Productions, on making a music video of “The Woods”. Filming in beautiful Tromsø in May.
Greeting to all wonderful women today! We’re in the studio going through all of the songs for the new album or porject of Radiomagnetic. The musicvideo for Parade is finished! It’s positive and energetic, just like we hoped it would be. The single will be released in May, with some really cool remixes by Biosphere and Jori Holkonnen, oh my, we do look forward to share them with you all! The video will be kept secret a little while still, but if you follow Frost on FaceBook or read Aggie’s tweets on Twitter (Frostworld), you’ll be the first to know the secret place to log-in for a special sneak preview :)
