HYPERTEXT – a band based in Bergen and Oslo, Norway – was established as a quartet in 2006. Since then the band have grown into a sextet including members from various other bands such as The Gin and Tonic Youth, Susanne Sundfør, Casiokids and Electric Eye.

HYPERTEXT mixes elements of krautrock, Steve Reich, noise, melodies and vocal harmonies. This have been noted by, among others, The Fly:

“Hypertext – There’s nothing not to like about Hypertext, with all of their little Wilco-esque quirks, expansive, shimmering guitars and soaring melodies. They are excellent. The Fly”

 

Over the years HYPERTEXT have played many shows in Norway and Europe, among them festivals like Øya, Hove, Spot and By:Larm.

After two albums, ”Corrente Elektro” and ”Astronaut Kraut!”, the band is currently releasing their third full length album PROGMATISM (April 19th).
