From Scratch consists of four aspiring musicians from Oslo: Hedda Rungstad, Ada Rummelhoff, Susanna Sorensen and Alma Lyngstad.
The name came to be as a literal interpretation of the bands process. It all started when the members decided to make a band from nothing. The girls barely knew how to play their instruments, and had never played a concert in their life. They started «from scratch». From the beginning their main focus has been to convey personality and opinions through lyrics and music.
