Hailing from the far north of Norway’s Arctic circle, Alta, Petter Carlsen creates his own unique mix of alt-rock and indie-pop without limits. His last album is Glimt (2017), an album with complete Norwegian lyrics and more classical and folk influences. It was well-received, especially in his home country, helping him win the Arctic Talent Scholarship in August 2017, the biggest award in Northern Norway.

Petter is currently working on his new album entitled The Sum Of Every Shade (release date TBA). “Dogs” is the second excerpt. He explains: “Dogs tells a different story, about masks we’re wearing, where we hide our true feelings (especially online) and where the modern world lacks real connection between people.”
