Slaves to Fashion? Are we really? And if yes, is 'Artistic Differences' in fashion, or not? There are four people who really do not care about the answers to those questions: Johannes Stole (Vocals), Torfinn Sirnes (Guitar), Vidar Ingvaldsen (Drums) and John Lind (Bass) play a Rock music that is timeless and by that the very opposite of fashion. Founded five years ago in Haugesund, Norway, as PEDESTRIANS OF BLUE (two demos were released under that name) the band changed their name to P: O: B soon after and released their self recorded debut album 'Crossing Over' in 2007. Despite excellent reviews, no label could be found to publish the album under the new name to a wider audience, as the labels capitulated to the originality of the work. Three years later, Frank Jaeger, a German journalist and friend of the band, decided to take matters in his own hands and founded Hands Of Blue Records with one specific goal: To publish the next album of what he thinks to be one of the best Rock band ever to have come from Norway. The band composed ten songs that would honour the intentions and efforts from band and label alike, and everybody involved is certain that these tunes have the potential to become major hits, be it the song 'Mrs. Hero', which will be released a few weeks after the initial release of the album as a radio single (plus 'Love You Back') and which could easily be a chart breaker if discovered by the right persons, or the melodic 'Superstar (I Want Out)', or maybe even the melancholic and deep 'Out Of Here' with it's haunting melody. And finally, 'Artistic Differences' contains the longest track the band has ever written, and which is a little reminder of progressive roots and tendencies among the musicians: 'Facts On The Ground'. Overall, a diverse, suspenseful and innovative album from a young underground band .
