Will It Ever Be Christmas Again (Xmas single)

SoftWave’s Christmas single, released December 1st, 2022 (digital)

Leading up to the release of the EP, Jerry Olsen (producer, SoftWave) sat in the studio and played with a bell sound, which captured him so much that it unintentionally ended up with the creation of SoftWave’s first Christmas song! With less than 2 months until December 1 st , they chose to co-write with a former collaboration partner from Great Britain, Barney Ashton-Bullock.

Barney is a playwright, poet and librettist in the project ‘Andy Bell is Torsten’ alongside Erasure’s Andy Bell (see p.3). Barney has previously invited SoftWave to produce 2 remixes for Andy Bell’s sold-out LP (‘Club Torsten’) which ended up on the UK OFFICIAL ALBUM CHARTS in the good company of Vince Clarke (founder of Erasure, Yazoo, Depeche Mode).

Will It Ever Be Christmas Again

Aspire (EP)

Released October 14, 2022 (digital)

All 5 songs have their own vulnerable and meaningful struggle story that seeks to inspire and motivate others to reach new heights.

There is a song for everyone…
The happy breakup song, ‘Thank You For Breaking My Heart’
The song for the idol, ‘Supernova’
The anti-bullying song for the bully and the victim, ‘Don’t Bully Me Again’
The song for persons who can’t get out of bed early, ‘Wake Up’
…and for the more serious person who likes to reflect on the World, ‘This World’

System Failure (Single)

Released June 11, 2021 (digital)

SoftWave’s hit single with more than 100K streams
The single seeks to show how important it is to maintain a permanent balance, a harmony between connecting with other people via a computer – and actually socializing in physical form.
A contrast between the modern and traditional way of communication, for lack of better wording.

Game On (Debut album)

Released April, 2019 (digital/LP/CD)

With support from DJBFA and Koda’s Cultural Funds

SINGLES FROM THE DEBUTALBUM ‘GAME ON’
1. ‘Something Is Missing’ (February 27, 2019)
2. ‘No Need To Hide’ (March 13, 2019)
3. ‘Galaxy Of Stars’ (March 27, 2019)

’Game On’ is a Danish musically uplifting synth-pop universe without ironic, attitude and stadionpumping shifts.
The debut album from the hardworking duo is the beginning of something grand. A blend of pop music, synths, hardware, love, and gaming, which completes SoftWave. SoftWave invites everyone to join their game – the only thing you have to do is “PRESS PLAY”.

The music is produced by SoftWave, programming and synths by Jerry Olsen and vocals and lyrics by Catrine Christensen.
Together they create catchy choruses, which seek to move your soul, motivate the drive to live and maintain happiness transcending existential crises. The album title ‘Game On’ refers to the positive and fun of gaming from both the 80’s and nowadays. This has had an effect on the music and lifequality of SoftWave. SoftWave describes the forthcoming release with the words: “…It’s like a drug pulling you away from the seriousness of everyday life, pure entertainment with the goal of putting a smile on your face. It’s a throwback to the good stuff from the past that we bring into the future” . SoftWave produces pure synth-pop from the heart, a Danish production with inspiration from the British synth-pop sound with English lyrics written by Catrine Christensen. Catrine describes her lyrics as “Stories from her everyday life with a touch of happiness, personality and fighter spirit, which seeks to awaken the listener’s curiosity and inner glow to never lose courage”.
