Casiokids Have Me Wanting To Learn Norwegian

13 Sep

Ambassador Beats is branching out a bit. We want to start bringing our audience music that they may not otherwise have access to. I like to think we already do that by offering such a wide variety of musical genres in one place, but today I am really thinking outside the box.

I would like to introduce you to Casiokids. They are a band based out Norway and have an album coming out on October 11th entitled Aabenbaringen over Aaskammen. For those of you who don’t speak fluent Norwegian, it roughly translates to the revelation over the mountain.

This 10 song LP is some of the best indie pop rock I’ve heard in a while and it just so happens that you won’t understand a single word on the album. But that doesn’t take away from it at all. It is a strange sensation listening to music where you don’t understand what is being said.

I was lucky enough to get a listen to the album and was blow away. Each track is better than the last and there are a variety of different songs and styles on the record ranging from an orchestra style ballad on the opening track from which the album takes its name to an indie dance song in Golden Years.

You can listen to the first single from the album Det Haster! below and hopefully another track or two will drop before the release date a mont from now. I really enjoyed the album and I’m pretty sure you will too. Give it a chance and expose yourself to a new style of music, you’ll be glad you did. If you like what you hear you can pre-order the album here.
