Embla and the Karidotters

Former drummer of Norwegian indie legends Razika (SXSW 2012, praised by Pitchfork), now fronts her own country outfit. Norwegian Grammy winners, played Stagecoach 2023 (Nikki Lane's stage) and they have a new record coming out in August 2024. Rowdy and catchy honky tonk with attitude, by some of Norway's finest instrumentalists.

Wide Open Country: «Norwegian country-folk band Embla and the Karidotters explore wanderlust and hometown pride on the old-school country shuffle «Bergen Blues».

Twangville: «...the kind that you’d want to hear while cruising down a rural highway.»

B-Sides & Badlands: «Hometowns can be both “comforting” and “suffocating,” as singer-songwriter Embla Karidotter describes it. That emotional tug-of-war anchors her brand new song called “Bergen Blues,” featuring a bevvy of musicians in her backing band.»
