MANAGEMENT/BOOKING – INFO@GLASSVILLEMUSIC.COM

Soup are a band from Trondheim, Norway and were founded in 2004 by the Norwegian based multi-instrumentalist Erlend Viken as an outlet for his song writing and compositional talents. Soup’s music has been likened by some critics to that of Steven Wilson, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky among others.

With their new (7th) album ‘Remedies’, Soup dives into a more jam oriented landscape, experimenting with 1970’s prog elements, while still remaining a singer-songwriter feel. This all mixing it with the established soup sound: dynamic, melancholic and melodic. Produced by Paul Savage. Cover artwork, layout and photography: Lasse Hoile.

The band now consists of Erlend Viken on vocals, keys, and samples; Ørjan Langnes on guitars, Jan Tore Megård on bass, and Espen Berge on drums. A fifth member was then added after the recording of “Remedies”, Pål Ramsøy-Halle: He will be helping out on keys, guitars, and backing vocals for their live shows.
