Norwegian black metal and similar rock genres have been a big export for decades already. Since the beginning of 2000, a whole new variety of successful Norwegian artists have seen the light of day.
Electronica, pop, jazz, and various rock genres. The Hvitserk of Norway office has gathered all their favourite Norwegian artists, songs and genres. In the list, you will find internationally known electronica artists like Röyksopp. Since the Tromsø-based duo bought their first drum machine, they have continued their electronic entrepreneurship with great success. Check out our favourite, Running to The Sea!

A less known artist is the Oslo-based artist Anna of the North. Together with her companion Brady Daniel-Smith, the up and coming artist is playing “soft, soul-bearing electro-pop”. Our recommendation, Oslo!
