Flunk

The Songs We Sing - Best Of 2002-2012 AlbumPurchased

Flunk consists of Anja Øyen Vister (vocals), Jo Bakke (guitar) and Ulf Nygaard (electronics), along with associated member Erik Ruud (drums). In the end of April, it is 10 years since their debut album "For Sleepyheads Only" was released, and to celebrate this, the compilation "The Songs We Sing" is released, summing up their career so far. Their debut album is still one of the biggest success-releases on Beatservice Records. With good help of a downbeat cover version of New Order’s "Blue Monday", and the album’s trademarked post-trip-hop beats, Flunk and the album got a lot of attention around the world, especially in the US. That is, the international attention for Flunk was on the legendary John Peel Show on BBC Radio One, who played Flunk’s version of "Blue Monday" as early as autumn 2001. "Folktronica" was a label US press invented to describe Flunk’s music, and also the next album Morning Star (including bonus tracks later collected on the Beatservice album Play America) was very well received by the American audience, through a license on the US label Kriztal Entertainment. The following two albums went down a more moody and experimental path, but still including their bitter-sweet pop-elements. Tracks from Flunk have been used in TV-series like The O.C. and CSI, and in Hollywood-movies like Nancy Drew, and commercials for a.o. Volkswagen. Flunk went on a US tour in 2006, and went to China for a tour last year. And they have played for Flunk-fans in more obscure cities like Tessaloniki, Bratislava, Istanbul and Beograd. On "The Songs We Sing", highlights from all of the albums are collected, including big hits like "Blue Monday" and "Play", download/stream-favorites like "On My Balcony" and "Common Sense", and live-favorites like "Sit Down". But the story doesn't end there. Flunk is in the studio working with their next album, planned for release winter/spring 2013. To be continued...
