Flunk from Oslo, Norway started out around 2000, originally as a trio: Ulf Nygaard (programming, vocals), Jo Bakke (guitars, bass and more) and Anja Øyen Vister (vocals, guitars).
The first Flunk track, ‘Indian Rope Trick’, was released winter 2001. Flunk gradually expanded to a five-piece band, including live musicians, Erik Ruud (drums) and Ole Kristian Wetten (bass), who have also joined in recordings.
The band made a big impact with their downbeat cover version of Blue Monday on their debut album. The track was first played on the legendary BBC Radio 1 John Peel show. Flunk arrived in the chill-out era, and their music was the origin of the genre term folktronica, adding guitars to the machinery of downbeat electronica.
Flunk have to date released six studio albums plus remix and demo compilations, the latest studio album ‘Chemistry and Math’. Flunk have contributed to Hollywood movies and well known TV series like ‘The O.C.’ and ‘Designated Survivor’, and have toured the US, China and Europe.
