Press info

Kjernen i The Electones er Jens Petter Nilsen og Hallvard Wennersberg Hagen. Også kjent som som Xploding Plastix, men dette er noe helt annet... De to første The Electones 12"-ere på den britiske labelen Inertia i 2002 og 2003 høstet mange god-ord i britisk musikkpresse:

"Steps confidently not to mention beautifully between the realms of jazz, electronica, classical and acoustic folk. Class!"
(DJ Magazine)

The Electones var opprinnelig et samarbeid mellom Jens Petter, Hallvard og vokalisten Rita Augestad Knudsen, men etter hvert som jobbingen med debut-albumet har utviklet, har de knyttet til seg mange andre samarbeidspartnere, vokalistene Kaja Haven, Endre Bjotveit, trommis Erland Dahlen (også på vokal og sag(!)), samt Bjørn Charlie Dreyer og Lars Fredrik Frøisli på diverse instrument.

Nå er deres debutalbum omsider klart, "If You'll Be Null, I'll Be Void" er tittelen, og musikalsk kan det beskrives som en blanding av 60-talls folk, tidlig electronica og en dose Lanois.

The core of The Electones is Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Wennersberg Hagen. You may know them as Xploding Plastix, but this is something quite different. Following the release of two 12"-ers as The Electones on the UK label Inertia in 2002 and 2003, they received their fair share of nice reviews:

“Steps confidently not to mention beautifully between the realms of jazz, electronica, classical and acoustic folk. Class!”
(DJ Magazine)

The Electones was originally a collaboration between Jens Petter, Hallvard and singer Rita Augestad Knudsen, but the album has evolved into a collaborational effort, adding the voices of Kaja Haven, Endre Bjotveit and Erland Dahlen, the latter also on drums, percussion & saw, plus Bjørn Charlie Dreyer and Lars Fredrik Frøisli on various instruments.

The result is the stunning debut album "If You'll Be Null, I'll Be Void", who can be described as a mixture of 60-ish folk, early electronica and a dose of Lanois.
