Obviously not happy with the state of Olympic music as is (and, to be fair it is mostly cringe inducing cash-ins) Norwegian left field ElectroPop gang Casiokids have decided to give away their track, Olympiske Leker, for free along with a brand new version. The whole thing is odd, it’s probably the least sporty track ever, but that’s probably a good thing.
If you haven’t already heard the track, it was one of the standouts from their Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen album, it’s typically Casiokids eclectic. Lo-Fi, but not sparse, the synths are cheap, but there’s lots of them. It’s a juddering, and insanely catchy track with a deceptively majestic melody. Quirky ElectroPop with an ice cold exterior but a warm heart. The V.2 take on Olympiske Leker, is a bit more dancefloor aimed (but only a bit) which adds energetic beats to the mix. Casiokids are launching their own Olympics in Twitter, the winner of the best suggestion for a new sport to be included in the Olympics will receive their album and a Gullbrød (Golden Bread) chocolat. #casiolympics on entries.
Casiokids Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen album is out now.
