Yesterday I received an email about an intriguing band from Norway called I Was A King. They’re definately worth checking out. Fuzzy melodic pop music. Norman Bleik is a great track, you can hear it on their Myspace. It’s available as a 7″ and features Sufjan Stevens making a guest appearance on the song It’s All You. I think I actually prefer It’s All You to Norman Bleik. It opens with some sparse, mellow piano and then launches into a powerful, catchy, brilliant pop song. You can purchase the single here.
Stereogum have also pegged them as a band to watch. I’m inclined to agree.
