ONE TWO - Hvide Løgne (1990)

ONE TWO - Hvide Løgne
Female AOR band from Copenhagen, Denmark.
"One Two" consisted of the two lead-singers,Cæcilie Norby and Nina Forsberg and the guitar player Søren Bentzen (who also wrote most of the music) as stable members.

Their '86 self-titled enjoyed great success in local charts, getting massive radio airplay and 2 singles released.
To the next album, Søren decided to give the group a melodic rock&pop approach. Roxette was ruling the world...

I think they have achieved their goal, 'Hvide Løgne' sounds fresh and listenable, like a female Mr. MISTER or the stylized side of STARSHIP, and sometimes, the poppy version of HEART.
Mostly sung in danish language, the inclusion of some songs written in english denote the intention to enter the UK market.
They try it with the next and final album, but fails, and the group dissolves.
Nina Forsberg have since recorded some albums with her modern rock band, Cæcille Nordby has turned to a jazzy style.

For fans of melodic rock/pop AOR, with an emphasis of quality female vocals, 'Hvide Løgne' is a recommended listen.
