Originally the solo project of Marius Drogsås Hagen, indie-pop troupe Team Me began gaining attention in their native Norway when they found themselves in the finals of radio station NRK P3′s new band competition in 2010. From there they picked up acclaim from further afield with their eponymous debut EP, which was released in April last year, and well-received live shows all around Europe.
The band release their brilliant debut album, ‘To The Treetops’, via Propeller Recordings on 5 Mar, ahead of which CMU asked the band (then still a sextet, before the recent departure of multi-instrumentalist Synne Øverland Knudsen) to put together a playlist.
Explaining how their playlist was put together, the band said: “Here’s a collection of different songs that have influenced the six individuals of Team Me, and the reasons why they mean something to us. We’ve included personal comments relating to each track to give you a crash course in our diverse music taste. Hugs from Synne, Bjarne, Simen, the other Simen, Uno and Marius”.
