Let´s face it. “Live fast, die young” is getting old and tiresome. So what next? Enter virtue and vice. Enter arrogance and humility. Enter the unlikely Tôg. A house pop-band influenced by horrorfilmscores, gypsy music and film noir. A seven-man-band naming themselves after a slang-word meaning "jerk" in the accent of norwegian that they sing in. A lead singer who, when he isn´t on stage, spends his time in seclusion, praying and discussing ethics and the word of God with munks and hermits, singing the lithurgy of the hours and meditating in the woods. It was on a pilgrimage in the south of France that the vision of Tôg evolved into what it is now. This vision has lead the band to pack dark, dingy clubs in Norway with all kinds of people, dancing and celebrating a hope of something more. In the darkness of the club, the brightness of the lights. Here's what people are saying in Norway: "Catchy and sassy. Their songs have a immediate appeal, and before you know it you´re caught in Tôg's flirting web of electro-pop. They've shown they have plenty of singles waiting to emerge." -National radio station P3 "Tôg are the saviours of Norwegian pop" -National newspaper Dagsavisen "These 7 Norwegians have a talent in hit-making!" -National tv show Lydverket "This is a band not afraid of journalists nor hipsters, that takes a successful stab at dance friendly pop with references to the 60s, 70s and 80s." -Largest festival in Norway Hovefestival
