Norwegian band Casiokids release their new single, Det Haster (in English that means ‘It’s urgent’), on Monday 24 October.
Det Haster is filled with electronic synths and melodic bass beats along side calming, high pitched vocals – the typical sound you expect from this band. But there’s something satisfying about listening to this track, it has a positive and happy feel. Although I can’t figure out for the life of me whether the lyrics are sung in English or Norwegian, it’s still a great song to just sit back and relax to.
However, Of Montreal have done a remix which pads the single out a lot more. With a heavier and undeniably more dramatic sound, this remix is perhaps better than the original. The bass is more powerful, the synth is highlighted and there’s a stronger dance beat behind it.
Take a listen here.
Since Of Montreal supported Casiokids in 2009, their working together has become a regular habit. Releasing a record store day split 7″ in April this year, they’ve also planned for future tours and Of Montreal have helped out on Casiokids debut album, Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen, which is set for European release early next year.
