Deathcrush + Bad Grammar + Groves...

The Beauty Witch presents Deathcrush Bad Grammar Groves Noise-Rock/No-Wave band from Oslo, Norway, consisting of Vidar Evensen, Linn Nystadnes and Åse Røyset.

After recording with Billy Anderson (Swans, Melvins, Mr. Bungle) and Jørgen Træen (Datarock, Annie, Sondre Lerche) more songs for their much anticipated series of singles are now in the mixing hands of the band’s own Linn Nystadnes. The latest edition in Deathcrush’s single-series playfully mixes hip hop, pop, trash metal and noise-rock. It manifests their sly, catchy sound; what John Robb called “a stunning and effective dissemination of the New York sassy cool trash aesthetic into a new century and with their own vital slant”. The video for the single won “Best Music Video” at Atlanta Film Festival and the KinoKino Film Festival in Stavanger, and was also shown at several other film festivals. It was also one of 19...
