The only Avalanche that wishes you well...




Avalanche is a Norwegian duo formed in 1984 by Kjetil Rosnes and Kirsti Johansen.


Little is known about this Scandinavian duo except that he will become famous with the title "Johnny, Johnny come home" which will be a huge success in France, as well as in Germany and Norway.


The group will have produced other titles that went relatively unnoticed but that it would have been a shame to ignore.

Clips :


1984 ... a first major title for a duet, my faith, very sympathetic. A duo that will produce one of the most emblematic titles of the decade ...



1985 ... the sound is trendy, as is the style. The rise in power is linear and we suspect that at some point, something big will inevitably happen ...



1986.. at the rate of one title per year, it is certain that the group will not go down in history as the most prolific of all. But quality is better than quantity. The proof with this title !



1987 ... the best is yet to come, that's obvious. The group now masters the elements perfectly. So we imagine a suite of very large caliber ...



1988 ... and the following very large caliber, here it is ! They simply sign here one of the biggest Dance hits of the 80s and at the same time offer themselves a direct ticket for posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !



1989 ... a beautiful incursion into the Intimist, an area in which they had rarely ventured until then. Magnificent !



1989 ... closure of the parenthesis 'With emotions' and return to Dance mode. A nice title but can do better it is clear !



1990 ... a change of decade which will unfortunately be fatal to them. Now difficult for them to resist in the face of competition from young youngsters with very long teeth ...



1990 ... a great adventure which ends slowly but surely. For one of the most talented Nordic groups of its generation ...



1991 ... they will pass the milestone of the 90s but the heart is no longer there. Just like the inspiration that is damn lacking. Pity...



1992 ... this time, it is indeed the end. A last title which does not deserve, it is clear, but which unfortunately shows that the group does not really have the level to fight on equal terms with the competition ...
