Album Review: Razika – ‘Project 91’

Scandinavian dream-pop at it's best

This Scandinavian teen female four-piece make dreamy alt-pop. So, everyone, hold tight, maybe even look away for a line. Or at least close your ears. I might as well mention the inevitable right now and get it out of the way – [a]THOSE DANCING DAYS[/a]. Phew. That’s better.

Except, luckily for [a]Razika[/a], ‘[b]Project 91[/b]’ is more 2-Tone in vein than TDD. Tracks like ‘[b]Taste My Dream[/b]’ and ‘[b]Above All[/b]’ are lazy ska pop meets Riot Grrrl. So, it’s a bit like [a]The Slits[/a] at Notting Hill Carnival. Add in lush single ‘[b]Why Have We To Wait[/b]’ (a cover of a track by ’60s pop group The Pussycats) and it’s pretty perfect.
