It doesn’t get more retro than the Norwegian synth pop band Schnodig, and besides the excellent mix of Kraftwerk and 80/90’s eurodance inspiration, with a touch of post-punk & new wave, there’s also loads of dark humor in their music.
They been playing together for three years, and released their self financed debut album “Nerver i en bunt” last February, having an blast of a release concert and party!

The next confirmed concert will be at the Elektrostat festival in Oslo, November 5/6th 2015.

These days they just released a cover of the classic song “Noen å hate” (“Somebody to hate”) as a part of a competition to join an upcoming tribute album for the legendary post punk/rock band Raga Rockers.

Meanwhile, while we’re waiting for the results, have yourself a Norwegian language lesson here:

It’s not just their music and pictures that’s a bit twisted, do also check their YouTube channel with bunches of hilarious videos!


Listen to their debut album at Spotify, and there’s also rumours of a remix album after the summer.  Pay attention, Kant Kino fans! 😉
