iTunes Editors’ Notes

It’s both crazy and appealing when a band cites influences as disparate as Fela Kuti, New Order, and Paul Simon. Such declarations can lead to head-scratching but can also result in a big party behind the glittery curtain, and that’s precisely where Norway’s Casiokids take us. This quartet makes charming and sweet electro-pop, with enough curveballs and oddities in the mix to keep it interesting (the Norwegian lyrics contribute to that aspect). The title track is an orchestral piece rife with flutes and accordions, which yield to rainforest sounds. The title translates as “the revelation over the mountain,” and the record is (wink, wink) a nod to “Dr. Tarzan Monsoon” and his adventure stories. The twittering birds give way to the friendly swagger of “Det Haster!,” where a brooding synth line runs through the tune like an omen vying for attention amid the playful, finger-snapping rhythm and airy vocals. From that point forward, songs like “Dresinen” and “Golden Years” deliver perky, crisp, and often cinematic electro-pop that’s never exactly what you expect it to be.

Customer Reviews

I like the music, but no clue what they are saying

I have a tendency to download music by bands I never heard of sometime. Like the title says, like the music, but no clue what they are saying. Peace... :)

One of the years best!

Ever since I had purchased this album, I haven't stop listening. Both intoxicating and releavent.

Love love love this

They sound a lot more polished and way mature. Can't wait to see what they'll come up with for the videos.
