MoHa! play somewhat loud music influenced by incredibly varied sources. Some say the duo deal in sonic splatter. Others say it is reminiscent of the conversation your mate has at you on the weekend in a club when hes had too much to drink and is telling you how great everything is at 180km/h. Only instead of your mate it is actually R2D2, which leads you to believe maybe that someone did put something in your drink. In any case it is the work of two young men from Norway currently residing in Berlin.
Anders Hana on guitar, keyboard and a pallete of effect pedals, and Morten J. Olsen on drums and processed drums triggering a multitude of noises from each skin and cymbal. Two sides both compliment and confront each other, with sharp and mechanical movements on one, free flowing and unconstrained gestures on the other. Amongst their tightly synchronized riffs that seem impossibly mathematical and precise, there exists a looseness and nonchalance that stand MoHa! out as a band to watch out for.
Their albums Raus Aus Stavanger
(2007) and One-Way Ticket To Candyland
(2008) are available on Rune Grammofon. Together with artist and photographer Anu Vahtra
from Estonia and installation artist Idan Hayosh
from Israel they have created "Fire & Ignorance", a "sonic and visual performance that involves the audience in a physical experience of definite power and energy".
