Oslo five-piece Dråpe (pronounced
'Draw-peh') have established themselves as one of Scandianavia's most
exciting young bands since their unanimously acclaimed "Dråpe EP"
was released in 2011, impressing furthermore with the release of their
debut album "Canicular Days" in april 2013. The band subsequently
followed the great reviews up with even better shows at festivals such
as Roskilde, Øya and Reeperbahn Festival.
Dråpe on second single 'Memories': "This song just happened to come about while we were recording our album and was nicknamed "the dance song". Someone once said that it's the perfect song for some good old fashioned linedancing, but yeah - we've still to see anything like that at our shows (except when singer and guitarist Ketil gets in the right mood backstage, that is). It's is a feel-good song, with a sense of fragility lurking just beneath the surface. The song is basically about the waking up a little late on a Sunday and letting your mind fly backwards through last nights ups and downs."
'Canicular Days' was recorded at Greener Productions in Trondheim, Norway, mixed by Bjarne Stensli at Harrys Gym Recording Studio and mastered by Grammy winner Brad Blackwood (Calexico, Alison Kraus, Against Me).
'Canicular Days' is out now through Norwegian indie label Riot Factory.
