Featured Artist: Casiokids

Casiokids get us thinking about what life would be like if ABBA was still making records within the context of the modern musical world. This Norwegian electro-pop four-piece has found a way to craft contagious four-on-the-floor pop songs, while still maintaining a vintage sound that embodies just how cool they really are at heart. On the turn of a dime, the band takes what appears to be a straightforward pop song and launches into a spacey, outer-planetary experience. Interesting instrumentation and creative song structures compound with the band’s raw energy to make for an unorthodox and energetic combination. Hear their track “Fot i Hose” in this What Would You Do To Get To The Eddie? clip:
