If you can’t pronounce Oslo five-piece Dråpe‘s name you’re not alone. We called them Drape for ages and everyone was looking at us like we’d soiled ourselves. It’s actually pronounced ‘Draw-peh’ and the quintet will be releasing their new album ‘Relax/ Relapse’ on Oct 9th via Riot Factory.
You can check out the video for beautiful first single ‘Pie in the Sky’ from the forthcoming record below – typical Nordic minimalist chic combines with a dreamy, upbeat brand of lo-fi psych-pop in an extremely satisfyingly way, as the retro home movies that make up the video drench the whole thing in a healthy coating of nostalgia.
Punctuated by unexpected synths with a honeyed vocal, the new track is a song about “naïvety and living in denial” according to singer Ketil Myhre, who also mentions that the vocals on the track were done right after he had fallen of his balcony and broken two ribs.
That’s Nor-way to start the recording process Ketil [you’re fired – Ed].
