OLD DE SPAIN - The opening track is almost like a pirate shanty, Indie Folk complete with harmonies, chanting and a variety of acoustic instruments. Great intro to the third album by the talented Norwegian band.
CURVACEOUS NEEDS - A quickstep tempo, a mixture of Folk, Pop, Soul and Blues. A fabulous foot tapper! A catchy chorus make this an irresistible slice of Scandinavian brilliance.
OH MY GOD - A very unusual track, its got distant Soul backing vocals at times but mostly a Punk style vocal backed by an uptempo Indie Folk. This is genius and an experimental masterpiece.
LADY GREY - A simply beautiful Pop Folk track, melancholic and emotive vocals and melodies. Reminds me a little of Susanna Hoffs and Bangles' tracks. Its got that 60s Pop Rock vibe.
MY OWN TUNE - This track is a quirky, upbeat track that has a little Latin Disco feel with a merging of Folk and there is also a Rap interlude with hints of Ska! Another gem.
SHINE LIKE NEON RAYS - This is a New Wave Pop Rock track with a pumping electronic backing and 80s style vocals and chants and segments that remind me of The Cure's "Close To You". Class.
DRIVING AFTER YOU - A change in tempo, a moody, melancholic Blues Country track with a crescendo building vocal battle between lead and backing vocals. Superb.
FLASH IN THE DARK - Reminds me of a little Tori Amos or PJ Harvey, moody, angst ridden raw vocals against a minimal backing. Punky Folk Rock at its best.
MY DEAR - An upbeat, bouncy, quirky Pop Rock tune. Again has the elements of Irish style jig and various Folk segments. Its a good feeling song that will make you smile.
BAD GIRL - An uptempo Blues and Country Folk track that kicks into a more rockier chorus and some fierce strings.
ROCKLAND - A very sweet, emotive ending ballad to a super album. Reminds me a little of Fleetwood Mac and mostly like 60s Folk duo Simon and Garfunkel with awesome harmonies and minimal musical backing.
