softcore untd. consists of Onge $ushimane, also known as Emir Hindic, from the rap duo $ushi x Kobe, Andreas Høvset and Vetle Junker from the indie band Verdensrommet, and Mathias Humlen, also known as THIAS. The band started after the EKKO festival in Bergen 2015 when Verdensrommet performed an unfinished track that inspired Emir. They worked together on the track, which led to several more tracks and a band project. The music could be described as a mix of what $ushi x Kobe and Verdensrommet do – 808 drums, saxophones and jazz guitars. The band have already played several gigs in Bergen, including a headline gig at Vibbefanger’s sold out Vibbefest and a spot at last year’s Slottsfjell festival in Tønsberg.
