We find out more about ‘euphoric daze pop’ trio Great News.

Last week Norwegian indie-pop trio released their debut album Wonderfault on Bergen independent label Eget Selskap. Made up of Even Kjelby (guitar, vocals) Ole Einarsen (bass) and Lars Platou (drums), the band formed in August 2015 and have spent the past few years refining their sound and live show at gigs both in Europe and the UK. The results show on Wonderfault, an album full of dreamy instrumentals and soaring choruses, which make it a must listen for any Nordic music fans.
