Amish 82 is an elektro-trio from Trondheim, Norway, consisting of Jørgen Meyer, Bjørn Boassen and Snorre Valen.
The duo makes house-influenced electronic music which draws inspiration from a variety of sources, namely A-ha, Freur, XTC, Kim Wilde, Kraftwerk, Michael Jackson and 808 State.
Amish 82s debut album "There Is A Solitude Of Space" is a fullblown flirt with 80’s aesthetics, perfect summer nights, personal darkness, space travel, the cold war, long-drinks and youthfull fearlessness.
Amish 82s sophomore album 'So We Must Meet Apart' (out 25/5/12) explores darker themes than their exuberant debut, more gloomy and introvert but still filled with Amish 82s trademark elegance.
