There's really not much I can tell you about this one, as my research has been hampered somewhat by my total lack of knowledge of Scandinavian languages. Orangebox (not to be mistaken for any of the other bands called Orangebox or Orange Box out there, of which there seem to be quite a few) seems to be, as I understand it, Norwegian electronica project NortMiehd (something to do with someone called Daniel Lacey, which doesn't sound a very Norwegian name to me...), combined with Swedish singer Åsa, who have been working together for a couple of years now.

Orangebox recorded this track for an interesting compilation album 30 Days (this link takes you to a site that is in English, for a change, and you can download the rest of the album there too), which involved thirty artists working together to create thirty tracks in thirty days. They also entered a track into a competition to win a record deal and to be included in the score for a Norwegian film... however, if this is the results of that competition, I guess they didn't win. Oh well.

As far as I can tell, Orangebox don't have anything so mundane as their own website or even so much as a MySpace page, but if you go here, you will find a few more tracks to listen to and download.

By the way, if anyone out there can shed any more light on Orangebox, we'd love to know whatever you can tell us. Please feel free to get in touch and share any info you have!

**Note to self: must learn Norwegian. And Swedish.**

Hello, Daniel Lacey and Åsa Börrefors from Orangebox here. We stumbled across this page when looking for our own website (which isn't quite finished yet) How nice that somebody has taken the time to write about us :). I, Daniel, am perhaps not quite norwegian, as i was born in england, but me and my family have lived in norway since i was 3. Åsa is a proper sweed though, from the mountainous Jämtland in the north of sweden. we are busy making a website witch will be eventually and it will be multilingual so you english speaking types can understand it :). otherwise we've recently played a couple of festivals in norway and are settling down to make some new material to eventually go on our self released EP that we will use for mind controll. if your still interested in any more information about us, drop me a note at, otherwise thanks for the attention, were flattered.
