Despite the fact that Brundtland and Berge were schoolmates in their home town of Tromsø and did experiment with electronic instruments in the early 90's, Röyksopp only appeared years later when they met again in Bergen. The city had a vital scene for underground electronic music at this time, and they got to work with other Norwegian musicians such as Frost, Kings of Convenience, Those Norwegians and Drum Island in what was called the Bergen Wave. Their first singles were released by local independent label Tellé and later as the word spread, they got to release Melody A.M on British label Wall of Sound. It spawned singles like "Eple", "Poor Leno", "Remind Me" and "Sparks".
