Say hello to Hvitmalt Gjerde!

Norway’s new garage rock favorites are heading to Imagine, we cant wait to see them!

Are you among those who still haven’t heard these four boys’ suburban surf rock? Then you’ll have the opportunity during the final of this year’s Imagine Festival in Kilden August 3rd. Hvitmalt gjerde, which translates White painted fence, is made ​​up of four boys from Bergen. They play surf rock inspired by 60s pop, psychedelia and garage rock – with lyrics in Norwegian! The band was started in a loft in the suburb Minde outside Bergen, but their music has quickly spread throughout the country. This summer they are playing in a number of Norways biggest festivals, but are of course taking the time to stop by Norway’s only international youth festival, Imagine. In other words, yet another reason to check this date on your calendar!
