4 stars What a colourful landscape and catchy, friendly atmosphere their opus is. Such refined rhythmic bases and pleasant melody lines remind me of the similarity to another Norwegian project of the same generation NEEDLEPOINT. Their creativity and soundscape give me an assumption the two splendid units would be conscious of each other. Of course I cannot say which band I prefer and I should completely be absorbed and addicted to both of them. Their creation's shot me a massive bullet that encourages me under such a tough, depressive pandemic situation. I have definite energy even after hard work for covid-related issues around me. Let me say I wish I could go to Norway and attend their gigs soon.

Beautiful keyboard plays give me enthusiasm at the beginning of the first break "Angra P'". Their sound tension never falls to minorities, and uptempo powerful melodic / rhythmic management makes me quite optimistic. Such musical medication is crucial. Their chorus is not so dreamy but delightful. I'm wondering why their anti-popism can catch my heart firmly. Guess they always enjoy playing from the bottom of their hearts. Give a listen to their perfect instrumental combination, that shows me another safe and sound mindset. The following titled track gets jazzier and more stabilized but their colourful policy cannot be lost at all. "Alt blir verre" means "Everything gets worse" in English but mysteriously no bad image but bright hope I can feel via the track, there are infernal shouts in the middle part though.

On the other hand, "1992" is kinda nostalgic one I can listen to without any tension on my shoulders. "Muknado" is one of the poppiest / catchiest tracks in the album but their strong intention for musical innovation and sound impact. Not so simple nor easygoing but relaxing stuff really. I feel slight roughness deeply into "R'd Bil" based upon silky smooth texture. "Beksvart Gull" is a heavier electronika. I love such a dissonant potential. Their chorus is pretty enjoyable. Bright percussion plays are also immersive. Magnificent stability and calmness of the last "Se P' Me No", the shortest song of all, is quite suitable for the epilogue of this magnification. This epilogue would mention we reconsider our lives even in such a crazy, difficult situation. Such an energetic message should encourage me clearly.

4 stars I have repeatedly raised the point on this site that Scandinavia (or the Nordic countries, or however you want to define Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland) punch above their weight in the world of rock music. Based on their populations, those five countries (though less so with Denmark) ... (read more)

4 stars Knekklectric is a band born musically in 2012, releasing its 3rd album, 4 years after the avant-garde 'For Mange Melodia'. This new album offers 7 tracks from our current era, in the singular 'lesund dialect, signing colorful, fruity, bucolic compositions from which each note and air seems to sq ... (read more)
