First set of U.S.A. shows set for July

Norwegian duo Smerz are back with new track ‘Oh my my’, their first new music since releasing the critically-acclaimed debut EP Okey that Gorilla vs. Bear called “one of the best debuts of last year.” Produced, programmed and sung entirely by the duo, ‘Oh my my’, their debut release on XL Recordings, is a minimal track that’s pinned together by speaker sucking bass and soulful vocal melodies, crafting a modern techno sound that’s uniquely Smerz.

 

A video for ‘Oh my my’ – shot in Copenhagen, directed by Michella Bredahl and edited by Nikoline Løgstrup – is available to watch now.

Henriette and Catharina, who comprise Smerz, were raised in Norway but it wasn’t until they relocated to Denmark that they started collaborating on the music that garnered the early attention of underground radio troupes NTS and Benji B.  Smerz, who consistently blend sounds from various influences, are a finely crafted collision of different musical genres that FADER notes, “was incubated over years of late-night clubbing.”

 

Later this month Smerz will set out across the U.S.A. for their first set of shows in the country. The live set, which i-D calls “enchanting,” sees the duo performing side by side as captured in their recent performance at NTS’s Tate late night series.
