Biography

Subwoolfer is a Norwegian pop duo, probably established in 2021. The identities of the two male members are unknown, but they refer to themselves as “Keith” and “Jim”. 

The duo first appeared for a Norwegian audience on January 10, 2022, when NRK announced that Subwoolfer was one of the finalists in the Melodi Grand Prix 2022, the Norwegian selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. The two perform in public wearing wolf masks, gloves and a suit. The duo have not revealed their identities, but instead call themselves “Keith” and “Jim”. The band name is a cross between the words “subwoofer” and “wolf” – the English word for wolf, which is also the duo’s theme.

On the occasion of the Melodi Grand Prix, Subwoolfer played on his anonymity and avoided answering questions from the press about who they are. Instead, they came up with a fictional story that Subwoolfer was founded 4.5 billion years ago, lives on the moon and has “conquered every planet musically”. The mystery surrounding the duo has led to speculation about who is hiding behind the masks. Gaute Ormåsen and Ben Adams, as well as the Ylvis brothers are among the names that have been mentioned. They are accompanied by DJ Astronaut.

Subwoolfer released a separate Valentine’s version of the song, called “Give That Wolf a Romantic Banana”. 

Subwoolfer won Melodi Grand Prix with the self-written song  “Give that wolf a banana” and thus represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest.
