All Music Guide:
Norwegian teenaged friends Jonas Dahl, Arne Kvalvik, Kjetil Ovesen, and Ådne Meisfjord originally formed 120 Days under the guise of "Beautiful People" in the autumn of 2001. Relocating to Oslo, the group developed their sound and performed extensively throughout the country, releasing two EPs on the Public Demand imprint in the process. After several high-profile gigs such as the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K. and the Sonar Festival in Spain, the group signed with Norway's Smalltown Supersound but impressed the ear of New York's Vice Records. Their self-titled debut LP under their new guise followed in autumn of 2006 in the United States.
