Razika nice Uncut review

August 7, 2011Comments Off

“Norwegian teens’ eye-wide alt. pop. If there is a wiff of C-86 style whimsy in this debut, then its savvy more than compensates. Razika are four 19 year old girls who refract their love of the old 2-Tone, Cherry Red and Rough Trade in their parents’ collection as only fans of The Strokes and Lily Allen could. Songwriter/vocalist Marie Amdam impresses whether channeling Saint Etienne (Walk In The Park), or injecting skank into Morricone (Middelalder), and she sings convincingly in both English and Norwegian. Describing them as “mature” rather misses the point, but there´s no denying their talent” (Sharon O’Connell, ***Uncut Magazine)
