I had the strangest feeling this week that I might never listen to another English speaking band again. It was the week that I finally got hold of the new Kaizers Orchestra (Norway) album Violeta Violeta vol. II and but I also spent the week listening to Korpiklaani (Finland) and Heavenwood (Portugal). Of course, the band I listen to the most, officially my favourite band of all time, is Croatian band Kawasaki 3P. There is just so much the world has to offer if you can transcend language boundaries in music.
Back to Kaizers Orchestra. I have a slight crush on the lead singer Janove Ottesen and would very much like him wrapped up under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning. It doesn’t look like they have released any official videos from their latest album yet, but I found this video of their live performance of “Tusen dråper regn” at Øya Festivalen 2011.
I just love the drums during the introduction and the looks on the drummers’ faces. They went from really serious to really awed to be there on stage with Kaizers Orchestra!
The title translates to “a thousand drops of rain” and you can check out the English lyrics.
