Verdensrommet started in 2011 as a songwriter project between Andreas Høvset and Vetle Vik Gundersen. They recorded a demo tape and decided to give it to someone who could do something with it. They ended up giving it to Matias Tellez at his band, Young Dreams’, gig in Oslo that summer. He liked it, and decided to take the guys to Bergen and record the songs there.
Now, Verdensrommet has signed with Bergen based booking agency Shadow Agency, and are ready to release the songs produced by Tellez on the Bergen label Nabovarsel. They have been joined by two of their best friends, Ole Henrik Dyrseth and Martin Gowland to make a complete band, Verdensrommet.
Their music is influenced by the guitar driven rock of the Strokes and the floating pop harmonies of the Beach Boys, together with artists such as Burt Bacharach, The Four Freshmen, Animal Collective, King Krule, and Girls.
Verdensrommet are a breath of fresh air from Skien, Norway.
