Little Hands of Asphalt



Those of you not paying attention will probably not realize that there is quite the musical renaissance going on in Norway right now, and I was lucky enough to see it in action in February when I was invited to the by:Larm Festival and Conference in Oslo. The list of bands playing representing all of the Nordic territories and I discovered some great music that week, including Norwegian act Little Hands of Asphalt.

The band eschews the dark shoegaze many of their contemporaries are playing for a refined, absolutely pure pop, a band whose name can be uttered in the same breath as local kids I Was a King.

Their LP Leap Years is available domestically on Spoon Train Audio and in the UK through Lazy Acre Records.
