Babyjaws are a  genre busting electronica trio from Norway
featuring Norwegian film star Viktoria Winge.

Through the fusion of electronic and organic sounds over which Viktoria Winges glistening voice shines, Babyjaws envelope a very dynamic sound with their liveshow. Anton Jawdokimov the producer (previously worked for ‘Cold Cut’ at ‘Ninjatune’ and ‘Amorphous Androgynous’.)  fuses many genres like Rock, Electro and Dubstep, to achieve a sound full of atmosphere and originality. Dag Arne Abrahamsen, guitar and base player adds grungy edge and funkyness.  (also plays for Bastard Fist, Guardia Sivil, Kenya and Nemor)

Their downtempo album ‘Pulsatilla’ is already available for download from iTunes and has already been downloaded over 22 000 times from around the world,  This has led to a signing with the Record Label Moorworks and Cocohoeart Records.

Music blog review from itsthemoneyshot.com

“I sat on this album at first because, just from listening to the music, I was almost certain that Babyjaws were a huge, huge band that I just hadn’t heard of. It was the gradual understanding that they’re not all that well known that led to this post. “Cold Nights” is iconic stuff, a song that at once sounds really familiar and excitingly new. The b-side on this post was included for two reasons: A.) Its really, really good, and B.) It sounds nothing like “Cold Nights.” I’m hard pressed to classify Babyjaws other than one of the best bands you’ve never heard, . I understand their album’s for sale on their website. I recommend you buy it.”

In the midst of all this, Babyjaws has been busy recording new songs and assembling a liveshow that’s a lot more uptempo in style,  playing at venues in Oslo, like John Dee and Månefisken, and venues in London like Cargo and the Rhythm Factory.Writing new songs and recording has taken place in  a studio by the fjord in Norway,  and deep in the mystical English Cotswolds. Babyjaws are  busy  exploring other genres and styles of music,  including punk, electro, dupstep Reggae and house which the band will be showcasing live in 2011.
