Oslo four-piece Das Body fronted by the eccentric Ellie Linden has teamed up with producer Jorge Elbrecht (Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink) on their debut full-length, scheduled November 20th.

The band emerged with their debut EP in 2018, with praise from outlets such as FADER, i-D, Clash, Dazed, New York Times and many more. In March 2019 the band made their way to SXSW standing out as one of the festival's highlights (e.g: GorillavsBear )

Dazed: “…their debut EP show their incredible promise”

Clash: “The EP is rooms so much in just four tracks and yet it is hopefully just the tiny beginning of something much bigger for Das Body”

NBHP: The Das Body EP, released in 2018, is one of the most impressive debuts by a new artist in recent times, and with a splatter of new singles out last year, they look like ones to watch in 2020.

The album shows Das Body’s unique combination of pure pop music and the “Nordic odd-pop” that have been known for. They are writing pop music without the saccharine sentimentality that proliferates the radio. Instead, next to their vulnerability, they mix in a little vulgarity, or a little light-heartedness. Ellie Linden's live appearance and distinctive way of conveying music has been recognized as extraordinary by music press over the world since Das Body’s debut in 2018.

Her vocals warble and waver, and occasionally reach into higher, alien pitches.

“Peregrine” which finds its inspiration from the ancient meaning of the word itself - the sensation of feeling alien and foreign. The album also lends its more literal inspiration from a peregrine falcon the band discovered flying around their studio in Økern, Norway while writing the album.
