Lorraine are Ole Gunnar Gundersen (24, vocals), Anders Winsents (24, guitar) and Paal Myran Haaland (23, keyboards, programming). Their drummer is a little black box, which does exactly what it's told. The band began in earnest in the summer of 2000 after deciding not to return to school, choosing instead to rehearse full time in a decaying factory building 45 minutes outside of Bergen. Their unique and modern twist on influences such as Depeche Mode, The Cure, New Order, The Smiths and Pet Shop Boys has created a sound quite unlike anything else currently in circulation. "We're a bit 1985 and we're a bit 2020, we keep going back and we keep moving forward. We're like everything you have heard, and everything you have never heard." The result is an astonishing collection of songs that will become impossible to escape from in 2006.
