Norway’s finest purveyors of off-kilter, crystalline pop, Soft as Snow aka Oda Egjar Starheim and Øystein Monsen, are back with a brand new release. The 4-track ‘Chrysalis’ EP is the duo’s second original release, following their 2014 debut – the ‘Glass Body’ EP, which was also issued as ‘Glass Body Remixed’, a striking collection of reworked versions by Lucy, Gabe Gurnsey of Factory Floor, Maria Minerva and Brian DeGraw of Gang Gang Dance.

“Chrysalis is hard, direct, free, emotional. It makes us dance, connect, explode.” – Soft as Snow

Opening track ‘I Adore’ is characterized by abrasive synths and shimmering inflections, while ‘Fluid’ builds from glassy restraint to a synth freak-out. ‘Mouth’ is a menacing statement of intent, all tribal percussion and primal yelps, calling to mind the unsettling production of Mica Levi’s soundtrack for ‘Under The Skin’. The EP draws to a close with the energetic, skittering ‘Her Blood Is Gold’, with Oda’s strange, otherworldly vocal binding it all together.

The release was mixed in LA by Timothy Wiles, whose engineering credits as Q include Factory Floor and Liars, whilst his production career as Überzone stretches back to the USA’s mid-90s rave boom. The 12” is pressed to hot pink vinyl and housed in a high-gloss sleeve with artwork by Kytten Janae, in a limited run of 500 copies.

when you’re gone
they won’t know

tell the truth
truth is old
tell the truth
find a home

I feel it all
from heaven on

follow the atoms’ fall
we don’t know where to go

one of these days, one of these days
there is no home
no home
