Albino Superstars

Albino Superstars is a small Norwegian band consisting of 2 members; Fridtjof Støre (vocal), and Andreas Schüller (songwriter), both from the small town of Drøbak, outside Oslo. They are both childhood friends, and started working with music together in 2004. The first song "Popular" became a local hit. And by the end of the 2005 summer they had produced a music video to the song with the Norwegian producer Jørgen Johannesen.

In the original movie neither Støre or Schüller wanted to be on-screen, so the part of "the popular guy" which the song is about is being played by Andrè Anker-Hansen Rønbeck. They did however had a small part where they appeared as workers in the mansion the movie was recorded. In the final cut the producers insisted that they had a part in the movie, and so they became a part of the final cut. Making the whole movie as the lead character's dream instead.

As they are not able to live off the music, Støre works as a pump-mechanic in Oslo, while Schüller is attending the Paul McCartney funded school LIPA where he has 2 remaining years as a student.

Starting with "Popular" which became a popular tune for young people, Albino Superstars quickly became popular with the Norwegian Russ and in 2005, 2006 and 2007 they created songs for tour buses which the Russ used when they travel around in Norway. They held their first live concert in Oslo on 12 May 2007 for about 2000 Russ.

The first official release of "Popular" on 16 May 2007 became the number 1 sold single in Norway the first 2 weeks on the market. Holding a 16th place on the Norwegian Top 20, known as VG-lista. Their next single, "My Girls" was released in October 2007, and went surprisingly straight up to a sixth place the first week on VG-lista, the music video did create some controversy consisting mainly of topless and almost naked women. 13000 people watched the video on MySpace the first day of the launch after an interview in Norway's biggest newspaper, Verdens Gang.
