It's Been Longer Than 120 Days
120 Days have been playing together since 2001 and their debut took them around the world, from America, where they signed with Vice Records, to Japan, where they played to crowds of 17,000+. It won them two Norwegian Grammys and was not only critically acclaimed but also commercially successful.
Five years on and they've learned a lot, done a lot, and written a lot. And it all shows up on their new record 120 Days II. Darker and a bit tougher than their debut, the new stuff is sure to widen their fan base and wreak some havoc along the way.
Set for a March 6th release with Splendour (of Montreal/Casiokids, His Clancyness/Shimmering Stars) their latest single Dahle Disco is quite the tune. When you look up the definition of epic tune, you will see a picture of 120 Days standing next to it with this song in hand. Unfolding rich layers of synth, the single winds through cosmic soundscapes pulsating just short of an epic ten minutes.
