About Sandra Kolstad

Sandra Kolstad combines her passion for acoustic and electronic elements in an experimental musical universe, full of playfulness and imagination. Her highly visual performances seduce the audience and open up a world, where firm electronic beats, dreamy vocals and vivid instrumentals, challenge both ear and eye.

From a young age Kolstad has been devoted to music. She started out as a classical piano student in Norway, but soon her main focus became composing music herself. After having traveled around countries like Cuba, India, and Mongolia, Kolstad moved to Berlin in 2009 and started working on her own songs, establishing her musical identity.

In Berlin she began to work with electronic music, electronic hardware, and synths. Soon she discovered a sound she could identify with – a sound that is experimental, yet danceable, and invites the listener into her sparkling and extravagant reality. Focusing on exploring the live potential of her music, Kolstad’s performances are visually stimulating, just like her video and photo shoots.

Her debut album CRUX and her sophomore album (Nothing Lasts) Forever have won much acclaim both in Norway and internationally, and consequently Kolstad has been touring Europe, the U.K., Russia, Canada, and the U.S., also performing at Roskilde Festival and Øya Festival among others.
