Premiere: Watch Razika's Video For "Aldri"
One of my favorite new bands of the past 12 months is Razika, a Norwegian quartet whose blend of gently bouncing beats, chiming guitars, and heartbroken lyrics (their lyrics are in their mother tongue, but Google Translate offers a gist) put them squarely in the tradition of Heavenly, the Raincoats' "Adventures Close To Home," and other great twee-leaning acts. The video for "Aldri," directed by Mona Lerche (she's directed a couple of clips for her husband Sondre as well as the video for Razika's utterly infectious "Vondt i Hjertet"), captures the quiet joy that bubbles through even the saddest songs the band has to offer.
