Drivan: Disko (Smalltown Supersound)

Kim Hiorthøy has started the band Drivan, with the two Swedes Louise Peterhoff and Lisa Ôsterberg and Kristiina Viiala from Finland.
Disko is not at all "disco with a c", but lo-fi, strange electro pop, and lots of charming melodies. Even if the songs are sung in Swedish (and you don´t understand them), you would want to have the album of course, if you are a fan of Hiorthøy. The songs are about Volvos and camping, and life as it is I guess, and one of the songs may even have something to do with "Bat out of hell".
People also seem to find traces of prog and folk in here, but just check it out!

500 copies are made on white vinyl.
