Pelbo (stylized as PELbO) is a Norwegian band from Trondheim, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway. The band plays music that takes elements of electronica, jazz, rock and other genres.
They debuted in 2010 with the Grammy-nominated self-titled album 'PELbO'
"PELBO is violent and sophisticated tubas, exploding drums and sensational vocals; loopstations, fuzz pedals and hypnotizing beats - played by an extremely talented and uniquely exciting young Norwegian trio.
Since PELBO released their debut album in March 2010, things have only gone one way. Over 2500 cd's sold, sold out shows all over Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, tours in Germany, concerts in Malaysia and much more in a year culminating with PELBOs debut album being nominated for the Norwegian Grammys.
Norwegian newspapers and websites have lavished praise on the band, calling them "Norway's most exciting band" and "nothing short of an revelation" amongst other nice words.
After winning the prestigious Young Nordic Jazz Comets in 2009 PELBO has played jazz festivals and rock clubs all over Europe, slowly but surely building a loyal fan base and have grown a reputation as an extremely good live act, exhilarating their audience wherever they go.
PELBO are currently releasing their second album through Norwegian label Riot Factory. The album was recorded on a small island off the Western Coast of Norway and produced by acclaimed Norwegian jazz and noise guitarist Stian Westerhus.
