Flagget I Bakken
The mood is immediately set. Super dancy synthpop! The lyrics are very reassuring; when you're depressed, tired, stressed, etc., take care of yourself and your life, fuck everyone who expect things of you!
En Nesten Vanlig Mann
Equally dancy. I love that the lyrics of the first verse incorporate an old norwegian christmas song. ''Nerver i en bunt'' is also used, which is the name of their first album and its title track. The lyrics are about being an almost normal man, and that it's okay to be different. The ending of the song is great.
Love the synth in this one! The title means ''the fear'', and the lyrics are about the world being.. well, nuts. A small percentage owns the majority, people don't feel safe, and people spread hate. Don't feed the fear, and be nice to each other!
Et Rop Om Hjelp
Great title track! It's about getting older. ''I can live with the fact that the body is old, looks like wax with hair, and that the wax looks like it's melting - a little more for every year that passes by'' - fantastic! And realizing that you're as old as those grumpy old guys, but you don't have to be like them.
Great soundscape in this one. ''When the miracles stay away, and everything just hurts, make sure to keep your head cool, don't do anything stupid. When the miracles stay away, and life is a bitch, grab faith by the tail and swing it like a sledge(hammer)'' - yes, bitch and sledge(hammer) rhyme in Norwegian.
Awesome synth! Kinda stereotypically for this type of music the lyrics are about the future and technology.
The title means to do nothing, basically. I can't come up with a similar phrase in English. ''I just wanna dress nice and never trust anyone who's slender'' - amazing, haha. I can relate to the lyrics; I love doing nothing, and I can easily get tired, even though I haven't really done much.
Epic synth! Apparently the title is ''Geosynchronous'' in English, didn't expect that. Good thing I looked it up, or I would have written ''Geostationary''! Great synth as always, as well as the beat!
Love this! Super sexy sound. I had to look up the title, cause it's not a word used around here. It means ''the other people''. In this case basically the mainstream crowd, and that it's easy to ''howl along with the pack'', but if you're okay with joining them or not.
So cute, very 8-bit sounding! Beautiful vocals on the chorus. The title means ''last dance'', so it's about the last dance at the club and wanting to go home. So it's the perfect song to finish the album with.
10 songs and 40 minutes go by fast with this album! It keeps the vibe really well throughout the whole thing. The replayability of it is great too, I definitely won't get sick of this for a good while. If you like synthpop, futurepop and stuff like that, and maybe happen to be a nerd, you'll love these guys.
