Fra Lippo Lippi is a Norwegian band. They had several hits in the 1980s, such as "Shouldn't Have to Be Like That", "Everytime I See You" and "Light and Shade", and recorded a new album as late as 2002. The band name is derived from Robert Browning's poem about the Renaissance painter Filippo Lippi. Fra Lippo Lippi was founded in Nesodden, Norway in 1978 by bassist Rune Kristoffersen, drummer Morten Sjøberg and keyboardist Bjørn Sorknes.
Fra Lippo Lippi's debut is an absolutely essential document of post punk/new wave. While you'd be hard pressed to explain how this record could possibly exist had Joy Division not laid a certain groundwork, this recording is by no means a pastiche and stands entirely on its own. Drawing from a limited palette of sounds, Fra Lippo Lippi exercises a precise combination of attention to fine detail, taste and restraint. The shadows and space they create become part of the music
In Silence is the debut studio album by Norwegian band Fra Lippo Lippi. It was released in 1981 through record label Uniton.
