Crowdfunding the cd

Radiomagnetic is out, at least digitally, but many fans are now asking for a physical product. “Where can we buy the cd?”

Frost would absolutely love to make a good old cd edition, but the way the market has changed – with most fans streaming and downloading – it is unfotunately not within the reach of the band’s own label to invest heavily into the production and distribution of such products. Production costs, taxes and shipping fees are high, and all statistics show that cd-sales are just going down, down, down.

However, if you can prove this wrong, by being one of the customers making us reach the goal of 150 cd’s pre-sold, we know that it’s worth the effort, and will definitely make it happen.

If so, we will produce a classy cd-album edition especially for you, including lyrics and a bonus track or two. Artwork will be done by our designer Simen Justdal, and include an eight page booklet containing photos by Carl Critical (the man behind “The Woods”, and “Something New” videos), all shot during Frost’s expedition to Pyramiden, Spitzbergen in September 2012.

If we cannot find about 150 people to back the project, your money will be refunded, and we will not go ahead and make the physical product after all.

So – spead the word if you think this is a good idea – plan this year’s Christmas gifts way ahead for once – share the love of the very special arctic electronic pop-music of Frost.

“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.”

Frost event at Pyramiden

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.
