Briskeby is an electro-pop band from Larvik, Norway. The lead vocalist Lise Karlsnes is from Tønsberg. The other members of the band are Bård Helgland (bass) Bjørn Bergene (guitar) and Claus Larsen (drums).
According to one of the band members, one day Lise arrived and asked to join the then instrumental band. At first they were very unsure, but it soon turned out that her vocals matched their sound perfectly.
The band's name is derived from the neighborhood where their rehearsal room was located.
They released their debut album Jeans for Onassis i 2000 containing the big hit "Propaganda", and received international attention after they toured as supporting act for A-ha in 2000. They have won a number of Norwegian awards with their music.
In 2003 the band released their second album Tonight, Captain?, which saw declining sales and no big hit singles to match the success of their debut. The third album Jumping on Cars was released in 2005, featuring the hit "Miss You Like A Crazy".
In 2015 the band made a comeback with the single Rookie Mistakes and a number of live shows across Norway.
