|Norway’s computer camp loving, tracksuit posse are back with a fa-fa-fabulous banger lifted off their forthcoming EP, “A Fool At Forty Is A Fool Indeed”.
Bitter sweet symphony “The One” picks up where Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” and The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” left us. A neat treat for everyone who think Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and The Breakfast Club are the peaks of cultural evolution – and and a killer follow up to their 10M+ streamed hit “Fa Fa Fa”.

“A Fool at Forty Is a Fool Indeed is a great EP, full of fun and memorable moments. Grab your red track suits, get comfortable, and dig the sounds these guys are producing” – Spill Magazine
“…some of the slickest dance production in the biz, not to mention their effortless traversing between neurotic post-punk licks and coked-to-the-gills 1980s synth pop.” – Pitchfork
