In the ever-evolving landscape of indie-pop, Das Body from Oslo has once again seized the spotlight with their eagerly-anticipated sophomore album, ‘True Vulture.’ Following the success of their debut LP ‘Peregrine’ in 2020, the quartet, led by the captivating Ellie Linden, returns with a renewed sound, showcasing their distinctive “odd-pop” aesthetic. Lead single ‘Ordah’ sets the stage for a musical journey that transcends boundaries and embraces the unexpected.

Das Body’s journey began in 2018, securing a US label deal after a standout performance at Oslo’s “Bylarm” festival. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the band’s resilience shone through. Navigating as label novices, they took control, releasing ‘Peregrine’ under their own label in 2020, garnering critical acclaim and a Norwegian Grammy nomination.

The pandemic may have cut short their debut album’s launch, but Das Body thrives on reinvention. In 2023, they returned to the studio, recording ‘True Vulture’ and securing a deal with Brilliance/Warner Music. This chapter of their story reflects the indomitable spirit that propels them forward, overcoming obstacles and embracing change.

Das Body’s sonic identity is a rich tapestry woven from diverse genre threads – from woozy electronics and soulful R&B to the jagged edges of post-punk and the undeniable swagger of pop. Their eclectic influences coalesce into a unique sound that defies categorization, a testament to their commitment to making unfiltered and substantially new pop music.
