Peanut Holmes is a duo consisting of Chris Holm and Eirik Blåsternes, hailing from the city of Bergen, Norway. They have previously been working with everything from the far east underground hip-hop scene in China, to the vast cornfields of American indie-rock. They have been through it all, movie acting, playing national league beach soccer, skateboarding through the streets on their own signature pro-models.
The past years Chris has been busy with his own projects Young Dreams and Bloody Beach while touring the world with Sondre Lerche, Paperboys, Thea Hjelmeland and Miss Tati.
Eirik has been producing gems for Ralph Myerz, Son Of Light, Xiao Ou (CN/NO), The Youngfellaz (US), Sadat X (US), Lupe Fiasco (US), Suga Free (US), just to mention a few.
They met touring as live musicians for Paperboys and Miss Tati. Now they are joining forces under the Peanut Holmes moniker ready to explore the electronic abyss of Scandinavia.
Their debut EP “Hello” is the beginning of a journey through Peanut Holmes's magical and wondrous universe. Mixing up instrumental hiphop and weird electronica grooves with a leftfield attitude, this release will surely trigger endorphins.
Steady raps, soulful melodies, vocal contributions in Icelandic, French and even Swahili. As long as the world keeps buzzing in weird, whompy and synthesized slopes, anything can happen, right?
