Röyksopp is a Norwegian electronic music duo from Tromsø, formed in 1998. Since their inception, the band's line-up has included Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland. Röyksopp has been nominated for one Grammy Award, seven Spellemannprisen awards, performed worldwide tours, and produced albums topping the charts in several countries.
Röyksopp emerged from the Tromsø techno scene and Bergen Wave after experimenting with different genres of electronic music. The band solidified their place in the electronic music scene with their 2001 debut album, Melody A.M., released on Wall of Sound. Since then, the band has consistently experimented with various genres pertaining to electronica, gaining critical acclaim and success around the world.
On March 23, 2009, Röyksopp's third studio album Junior was released, with positive reactions from the press and fans.
Junior was a success around the world. The album peaked at number one in Norway, the band's third consecutive album to do so. The album also peaked at number 21 on the UK Albums Chart. In addition, the album also charted on many Billboard charts, including the Billboard 200 - the first Röyksopp album to do so - where it peaked at number 126. The album also peaked at number 4 on the Top Electronic Albums chart and number 3 on the Top Heatseekers chart.
Junior was followed by Senior, a counterpart to Junior, which is quiet, "withdrawn and introspective" and "create an atmosphere and an ambience". The album is comprised of entirely instrumental songs. The first single, "The Drug" was released on August 9, 2010, and the album has been just released few days ago (September 13, 2010).
