Kirsten & Marie

Imagine walking down the aisle of an old Gothic church. The air is filled with the sound of polyphonic melodies sung by two young girls. Gently, one is playing chromatic chord shifts on a nylon string guitar. They are twins.

The playful universe in Kirsten & Marie’s music reminds of love between sisters. Tambourhinoceros’ co-founders and Oh No Ono members Aske and Kristoffer immediately lost their hearts to the sound back in 2009 when they heard it for the first time. A fan of Oh No Ono had arranged for the sisters to play a couple of songs at the stairs of the venue after a concert.

Kirsten & Marie’s music actually kick-started the idea of founding a new record label led by artists and dedicated to the love for music: Tambourhinoceros. The EP Kirsten & Marie became its first release in May 2010.

A lot has happened since. In 2012 they released their debut album Newspeak which was fully orchestrated with violins, pianos, percussion and drums. During Aske Zidore’s production of the album huge string arrangements, real-world samples and more a were added to Newspeak. On one of the songs Kirsten’s budgie bird sings backing vocals and on others there are Strauss Mash-ups, just to name a few examples. All adding to the unique sound of Newspeak.
