The Norwegian electroica project KIST, rise from the collaboration between Isak Rypdal (producer) and Christine Litle (singer). The first single Rainy Day was released in May 2015, and KIST was soon described as Bat for Lashes meets Depeche Mode. Christine Litle has furthermore been compared to Róisín Murphy and Sarah McLachlan's female vocal of Delerium.
Although KIST is a brand new project, both Isak Rypdal and Christine Litle has long experience from the music scene. Litle is known from the Norwegian rock band Jane Helen, as a straight in your face kick ass live performer. She has also been part of the Norwegian formative electronica act Ugress, and demonstrates a compelling breadth of musical expression.
Rypdal is mostly known from Freeloader, Dr. No and Electro Spectre. Freeloader's single 'Pure Devotion' was listed on BBC's Radio One's top ten list for 6 months, and Electro Spectre's album 'Dangerous Game' was recommended as the world best electro-pop album of the year in 2012 by Side-Line Magazine.
Feel Free is the first single from Kist in 2017, and follows her dark and raw sound combined with a catchy melody.
