The three-piece from Bergen started as a duo, and were joined by lead vocalist Didrik Thulin purely by chance. From that meeting, WDSTCK was born, as was single ‘Flowers’. It’s snowballed since there. Thus far, their style is similar to the likes of The Other Tribe, Tensnake and Skogsrå with slick nu-disco dance beats.
Their latest offering, ‘Your Answer’, is no exception. Taking inspiration from Goldroom’s incredible remix of Wunder Wunder’s ‘Coastline’, their newest track is an excellent slice of chilled electronica that makes the all-nighter a little easier to deal with. If you’re looking for something to take you from day to night, back to day again, wack this on your playlist. Thulin’s vocals are perfectly complementing of the keys and guitar from bandmates [Simen Thunes] Hope and [Mats] Brown, creating a five-and-a-half minute epic that’s perfect from sun-up to sun-down.
As they said in an interview with P3, they only stop hearing the music when they sleep, and they always dance when they’re awake. That’s a mantra I can live with.
