Datarock is a hilarious group from Bergen
who play an entertaining brew of lo-fi rock, electropop, kraftwerkian sounds
, massive beats all juiced up with not so subtle humour.
As scary as it sounds, it most definitely rocks!
The band is the brain(dead)child of Fredrik Saroea, Ketil Mosnes and Kevin O’Brien and despite relatively few releases has already formed a bit of a cult following. Their gigs are simple but entertaining and if the music doesn't make you want to move, you probably shouldn't be blaming the boys on stage.
