Short biography

SoftWave – a Danish upcoming synthpop duo inspired by Erasure.

Softwave was established back in 2014 by the synth-specialist, Jerry Olsen and singer, Catrine Christensen. The duo is unsigned and uses DIY methods with great help from supporters around the World. Together they create a great combination of Jerry’s catchy melodic synth sounds, and the emotional expression of the adorable singer and songwriter, Catrine. Nice and easy the band follows the “waves” of progress in the music industry and for each wave they pass they reach new heights.
Together they built their own soundproof studio. This was a revolution and their first step into the music industry. In 2015 they finished producing their first tracks ever. Softwave’s debut concert was in a local library and after that day everything went fast. Summer 2016 the debut EP Together Alone was released on all digital stores. Softwave was discovered by several DJ’s, promoters and radio hosts from around the World. A huge new music network supported Softwave and today Artefaktor Radio from Mexico City is one of Softwave’s greatest supporters who regularly play Softwave’s music. On And On And On became their best track so far and has been ranked many times as the most played song in 2016 by different radiostations. They released a remix compilation in February 2017 as a result of their international support. One month later their first music video had its world premiere. The video idea was Softwaves own but produced by Stefan Kragh, founder of Muvi Productions, who also produced a Universal Music video. April 2017, Softwave had their first concert overseas which turned out to be a success with 2 amazing reviews. A one day festival in London called, Synthwave Live arranged by Artefaktor Radio. In addition to Softwaves kickstarter project they were mentioned in Erasures Newsletter. April 2018 Conzoom Records will release On And On And On (Patrik Kambo extended remix) on the compilation “Electropop 12” through Lexer Music (Erasures web store).

Kort biografi
Softwaves første lydbølger blev hørt i Danmark af GAFFA som gav de første 3 demoer 3/6 stjerner. Karrierkanonen anbefalede deres debut single Follow You. Efter Softwave udgav debut EP’en Together Alone i 2016 med det hidtil bedste nummer; On And On And On, er musikken blevet spillet utrolig meget i udlandet. I udgangen af 2016 blev On And On And On kåret til årets TOP 40 mest afspillede nummer (11. plads) på Artefaktor Radio (Mexico City) og nummeret Awake But Still Asleep fik en flot 26. plads på RadioSol (Israel) og igen i år kom On And On And On (Jerrys alternate version) på en 27. plads på RadioPlus (Israel). Softwave blev også interviewet i Radio Ballerup og kom i TV (Kanal Hovedstaden). EP’ens succes måtte fejres med en international remix samling udgivelse inkl. musikvideo produceret af Muvi Productions, som bl.a. også har produceret for Universal Music Denmark og Jacob Dinesen. Softwave spillede debut i London d.1 april 2017 og skal på mini Europa tour i 2018. Desuden producerer de i øjeblikket ny musik til debut albummet som både skal udgives digitalt og fysisk. I forbindelse med Softwave’s kickstarter projekt, blev de nævnt i Erasures nyhedsbrev, og til april udgives et af deres numre på en tysk compilation ’Electropop 12’ som udgives igennem Erasures online shop, Lexer Music.

Musikbeskrivelse
Softwave spiller synthpop af den gamle skole. Uden ironi, attitude eller stadionpumpede overgange. Bare rene sange du har lyst til at synge med på, om den så kommer i radioen, klubben eller når den stadig sidder i hovedet dagen efter. Uden at være gammeldags, er det det gode minde fra dengang en sang kunne bære uskylden og løftet om evig kærlighed i et godt omkvæd.
