Misty Coast (NO)
Misty Coast is the dream pop child of Linn Frøkedal and Richard Myklebust, known from the Norwegian noise rock act The Megaphonic Thrift.
After ten years on the road with amplifiers turned to 11, tours supporting indie heroes like Dinosaur Jr and Steven Malkmus, a Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannprisen) sitting on the shelf, mild tinnitus and odd jobs back home to add on the rock’n’roll salary, Frøkedal and Myklebust decided to adjust the recipe and cook up a new witch’s brew.
Since Misty Coast’s debut album in 2017, the band has been on tour in Japan, the UK and Europe, played a number of club concerts and festivals in Norway, been nominated for the Norwegian Grammy and garnered rave reviews at home and abroad.
Misty Coast is known for their strong guitar hooks, distinctive bass lines and catchy, dreamy vocal melodies, and parallels can be drawn to bands such as Cocteau Twins, Mazzy Star and Broadcast.
In 2021 Misty Coast released their third Album When I Fall from the Sky, produced by Emil Nikolaisen (Serena-Maneesh). They are now ready to show the world some new music, and have yet again teamed up with producer Matias Tellez (Young Dreams, girl in red). The singles The End of the Beginning, Brainchild and The Crossing was released in 2022, while the new album is due October 2023 on the norwegian label Fysisk Format.
