Razika- "Vondt i hjertet"
Every so often, a song written in a completely foreign language comes along and takes me by surprise. "Vondt i hjertet" by Norwegian band Razika is pretty much the perfect example, seeing as even though I can't understand a word of it, I plan on listening to it all weekend long. Aside from boasting syrupy sweet melodies and a nostalgic harmony, the poppy, young girl group has somehow made punk sound pretty, without diluting its intrinsic edge. Hard to believe? Listen to it and see for yourself! P.S. Does anyone want to translate it for us? ALI HOFFMAN
