Pining For The Fjords

Norsk electropop er bra fer deg! Five guys from Norway, a pineapple maraca, one dancing monkey, and the perfect guitar sound. Extremely charming electro-boys, two of whom could sing very high. Nice drumming and live dubbing, too. Beauty bass. By the end of the night all the Casiokids were switching places, playing every instrument, like James Brown used to do. 

All twenty of us were dancing! For ille du ikke rakk det. Much fun.
