14 Waves Delicate and moving guitar-driven minimal pop with just enough shadowy textures to appeal to the goth-inclined. Featured on Mix 21 of the 14 waves podcast: Favorite track: October Novel.

Kill Shelter It’s a mark of a unique contemporary artist when you can instantly recognise them by their sound and Antipole is one of those very rare occurrences. The signature, multi-layered, guitar sound mixed with hypnotic understated rhythms, driving bass lines, minimal synth textures and restrained atmospheric vocals all add up to make this release a very special listen indeed. Northern Flux is a classy affair and a must have for any Postpunk or Coldwave fan or collector. Favorite track: October Novel.

Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the twenty seventh issue of RULE of THREE ( October Novel demonstrates well how many corresponding melodic patterns can be woven together to create a dense atmospheric layer of guitar, rhythm, bass and emotion. While on top there is another layer of synth wave and almost dream-pop like vocals. It's this contrast where the magic originates from. This track will explode in to a myriad of melodies in your mind that will pop up again throughout your day. Favorite track: October Novel.

Antipole is Karl Morten Dahl from Norway.

Antipole started as a project after Karl met Anne-Christel in 2013. Karl had been writing songs and been in bands before but was inspired to start writing and record more music - this time inspired by Anne-Christel, the early 80s wave and postpunk music.

Antipole makes elegant coldwave/postpunk music. Guitar-based tracks driven by a linear rythm, inspired by the beauty of nature as well as the everlasting presence of mixed feelings while living our lives. The music is like sketches, gust, a puff of wind. An instant expression, a journey into the intersection of the lightest light and the darkest dark. A melodic-hypnotic sphere, only reached by the ones who feel the multifaceted shades of life. So fragile, but yet so strong.

Antipole has previously released two digital only 8-song EPs: “Panoply. Songs for AC” (2014) and “Getting Frequent Now” (2017). The former fully instrumental while the latter is featuring Paris Alexander.

The debut 14-song album “Northern Flux” out on Unknown Pleasures Records (UPR76) is featuring Paris Alexander and Eirene - both from Brighton, UK.
