Erik og Kriss
Dette ble ytterligere understreket når deres andre singel, Det e'kke meg det er deg, også viste seg for å være en stor suksess, tjene dem deres andre platina plate. Alle Erik og Krisss singler har vært tungt rotert på radiostasjoner, og deres musikkvideoer har tiltrukket seg millioner visninger på YouTube. I 2012, hadde ti år etter Erik & Krisss første hit, de gitt ut fire album, dusinvis av singler (flere gull og platina, tre trippel platina, to fire-ganger platina og en seks ganger platina), holdt mer enn 500 konserter over hele Norge og utlandet, tildelt premier som NRJ prisen for beste gruppe og MTV EMA beste norske Act prisen, samt tiltrekke mer enn ti millioner visninger på YouTube. I mars 2013 er det tid for en ny norsk tur, flere nye singler og utgivelsen av deres femte album "FEM". Erik and Kriss are known for their big hits, and their songs have featured on the Norwegian pop charts for almost three years in all. It all started in 2002 when Erik Mortvedt and Kristoffer Tømmerbakke wrote their first song Legend, a kind of soundtrack to their final year in high school. It was when they created their first website and shared their music for free that their fan base really took off. Erik and Kriss went from being two regular guys having fun to an internet phenomenon with more than 200,000 downloads and a record deal with MTG Music. They released their debut album Gull og Grønne Skoger in 2007. With singles like Den Låta, an appearance on the Norwegian equivalent of the Grammy Awards and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, Erik and Kriss proved that they were more than just an internet phenomenon, however. They had passed the first major milestone in what has proven to be an enduring musical career.
Only nine months after the release of their debut album, Erik and Kriss released their second album Verden vil Bedras, which proved that the duo were no one-hit wonders. Led by the massive success of the single Dra tilbake, which earned the boys their first platinum disc, Erik and Kriss had become Norway’s new pop favourites. This was further underlined when their second single, Det e'kke meg det er deg, also turned out to be a huge success, earning them their second platinum disc. All Erik and Kriss’s singles have been heavily rotated on radio stations, and their music videos have attracted millions of views on YouTube. In 2012, ten years after Erik & Kriss’s first hit, they had released four albums, dozens of singles (several gold and platinum, three triple platinum, two four-times platinum, and one six-times platinum), held more than 500 concerts all over Norway and abroad, been awarded prizes such as the NRJ Award for Best Group and the MTV EMA Best Norwegian Act award, as well as attracting more than ten million views on YouTube. In March 2013, it is time for a new Norwegian tour, several new singles and the release of their fifth album “FEM”. Read more on Last.fm.
