Hailing from the same celebrated Bergen scene that has produced Datarock and Annie, Casiokids were so-named for the beat-up old keyboards with which the band members first conceived their club-ready sound. Formed with the intention of making electronic music more visual, the band has since added guitar and drums to produce a collection of incredibly catchy tunes often sung in their native ...

Product Description

BBC Review

In 2008 Casiokids released the first Norwegian-language pop single in the UK, Grønt Lys I Alle Ledd. At that point the Bergen-based synth-pop crew had one cheap and cheerful Norway-only album behind them by the name of F*** MIDI, and looked set for some moderate indie-level fame. Two years later, a handful of further singles and their B sides – including genius instrumental house banger Fot I Hose – were collected as the Topp Stemning På Lokal Bar collection.

Now, finally, Casiokids have a proper debut album for the masses. And, with impressive intransigence, the outfit has refused to sing any more than a very occasional word in English. One might assume from this anti-conformist move that frontman Ketil Kinden Endresen and his bandmates do particularly care for mainstream success on the international stage. And perhaps that’s right – but, despite the language barriers erected, it’s a pleasure to report that they’ve produced a sparkling album.

The polysyllabic album title translates as "the revelation over the mountain". They think highly of themselves, these ‘kids. But while it’s praise too far to suggest the four-piece are offering truly revelatory fare, there are brilliant moments of oddness and euphoria peppered amongst these 11 tracks. The melody of Arcade Fire’s No Cars Go is hinted at during the title-track, a mournful piece enlivened by birdsong. Single Det Haster! makes jaunty use of Omar Johnsen’s driving synth melodies, resulting in a sweet yet weird flavour, and capping the opening trio is Dresinen, which sounds like The Coral covering I Monster’s Blue Wrath, albeit without the menace.

The LP’s best tracks come next. Golden Years is part-New Order, part-Kid Creole, a quirk-funk master-class. Brilliant and more likely to be a future single, Olympiske Leker combines Afrobeat percussion, Depeche Mode-style synths, glockenspiels and a light (but far from feeble) vocal from Endresen. The latter’s title means Olympic Games, and London 2012’s organising committee could do worse than adopt it as a theme tune this summer.

Elsewhere, and Selskapets Triste Avslutning begins like Vampire Weekend if they’d embraced a rather weirder side, only to transform into a slice of techno, and London Zoo features some urgent Underworld-echoing timbres and Endresen’s best, most wistful vocal. Everything adds up to an unexpected and intriguing album – but, then, one expects no less from a band that used to end their gigs with So Long, Farewell from The Sound of Music playing over the PA system.

Format: Audio CD
Blinking extraordinary! No more, no less. Norwegian band Casiokids really are
onto something with their quirky mix of pop, fairy tale folk and neo-prog
noodlings. If you don't find yourself twitching like a maniac to the glorious
rhythms of 'Olympiske Leker' then your bones are made of sawdust and you don't
possess any kind of sense of humour at all. It's a happy song; a very happy song;
fidgety and twitchy and daft in the best of all possible ways. It made me smile until
my face ached. The experience of listening to the band is somehow enhanced by
my complete lack of understanding of their mother tongue. I must get a phrase book!

There are eleven numbers in the set and much of its elusive charm comes from
its unpredictability and the homespun (despite their firm grasp of technology)
sound quality. Every track holds some kind of delightful surprise. 'Selskapets
Triste Avslutning' (try saying it without dribbling!) trips along without a
care in the world; a polyrhythmic, multi-layered confection full of tweets
and crashes and elfin vocals, the complexity kept in check with a light touch.
Opening track 'Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen' is a sublime chamber confection
touched by the spirit of Aaron Copland; a magical journey through a land of
bubbling streams and trees full of silver birds. A story without need for words.
'Elefantenes Hemmelige Gravplass' (something about elephants I'm guessing!)
demonstrates their canny way with a good tune and perilously addictive beats
and final track 'Aldri Ska Me Ha Det Goy' brings the album to a magical close
with its alluring falsetto vocal, deft harmonies and cheap-as-chalk-but-all-
the-more-lovely-because-of-it synth decorations. A truly enchanting conclusion.

Find a little corner in your life for Casiokids. You won't regret the investment!
