SoftWave – Danish synthpop with their own brand of “throwback” electropop – catchy and dance worthy

After touring with the million selling electronic pioneers OMD on the Scandinavian leg of their “Greatest Hits – Souvenir Tour” (feb, 2020),  SoftWave was invited by Erasure’s Andy Bell to produce remixes for his forthcoming Andy Bell is Torsten project ‘Club Torsten!’ among Vince Clarke, Bronski Beat and more (LP releases Feb 5th, 2021).

With support of notable synth musicians (ex Human League, Visage and Gary Numan members) the future of SoftWave looks promising. ‘Something is Missing’ (single, ‘Game On’, 2019) was licensed to ZYX Music (2019) and has been in rotation at the Danish National Radio (DR “P4 Aften”) and several other international radio stations. The single was also playlisted by OMD on Spotify, TOP charted by German Electronic Web Chart (GEWC) and Club 80s as no.1 most played song. After the release of SoftWave’s debut album ‘Game On’ it was charted as TOP15 best album and hereby it became a great success

“The Danish duo of SoftWave have crafted pure synthpop bliss on their newest LP, Game On… Not only does it work, I feel as if it stands head and shoulders with the likes of Erasure, OMD, and the Human League.” – NightrideFM (USA)

SoftWave was established in 2014. SoftWave released their debut-EP (Together Alone 2016, Together Alone The Remixes 2017) without any knowledge about the music industry and with huge ambitions of becoming a popular synth-pop duo in Denmark and abroad. SoftWave was recommended by Danish National Radio (Karrierekanonen), reviewed by GAFFA (DK), playlisted by New Nordic Indie, interviewed by The Electricity Club (UK) and supported by DMF (Danish Music Foundation), KODA and DJBFA.
