Strange Hellos: Gold For The Golden

Including members of Aurora, The Megaphonic Thrift, and Casiokids, Norwegian four-piece, Strange Hellos released their new album, Chromatic, this week, a solid representation of the band's notable sound made out of dreampop and power pop goodness. During the leading weeks before the album's release some quite notable singles built the anticipation for it, the latest of which, Gold For The Golden, is definitely qualified of making those heads that hadn't already turned the band's way, do.

Expect harmonies, jangly guitars and accessible melodies, alongside noticeable but sly influences that range from the nineties indie power flow of Teenage Fanclub to the more melodious sensibility of the early Heart records, or Fleetwood Mac - an obvious reference which all press around Strange Hellos mentions so far.

In oversimplified terms, the Nordic band's sound beholds a seventies flare through a nineties lens, blending the characteristics of modern music's two most important eras in a seamless way. It doesn't take long to win you over.
