About The Green Children
Milla (from Norway) and Marlow (from England) met at LIPA, a music school established by Sir Paul McCartney. After graduating, they relocated to Los Angeles and quickly secured a recording contract with Universal Music Group. Feeling stifled by the restraints of a major label, they became unhappy and decided to leave. In 2010, they released their debut album 'Encounter' with Spinside Records, a label division owned by the renowned musician Jackson Browne.
'Encounter' received high critical acclaim and was nominated in the first round of voting for a US Grammy Award in two categories; 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Pop Vocal Album'.
Rolling Stone described it as a collection of "Searching dance-pop ballads from elfin dreamers…Encounter glides by like Lady Gaga on a unicorn. Sunde gives synth-diva histrionics a mystical spritz, singing about dragons and black magic over skittering electro beats."
MOBO wrote that, "The Green Children masterfully sprinkle sincere soul and magic into a music scene that requires some much needed fantasy and romanticism…The emerald duo's debut is an audio fairytale that confiscates all grips on reality and leaves one hopelessly daydreaming."
During the release The Green Children were featured on the homepage of Young Hollywood, MSN, AOL, Yahoo, Amazon.com and on the iTunes Store. They also completed a US club tour and performed at several music festivals, including Summerfest, the world's largest. Encounter received several high profile remixes from the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Digital Dog and Moguai with a remix from 7th Heaven reaching #17 in the UK club charts. Most recently The Green Children completed a remix for chart toppers Foster The People, which quickly gained over 1 Million views raising money for SOS Children's Villages. The Green Children Foundation was established in 2005, in an effort to raise awareness and funds for those in need.
