DOWNLOAD: Eclectic Folkies Katzenjammer
Meet these quirky Norwegians who are beloved by David Byrne, and bound for Lilith Fair.
Norwegian all-girl group Katzenjammer can’t stick to just one musical genre. The eclectic, multi-instrumentalists fuse everything from folk/country to gypsy rock-pop on their debut album, Le Pop, out in the U.S. on June 29, and you can listen to new single “Tea With Cinnamon” below!
The four women — Solveig Heilo, Anne Marit Bergheim, Turid Jørgensen and Marianne Sveen — first caught SPIN’s attention when they were hand-picked by David Byrne for his own artist-curated stage at the Bonnaroo music festival in 2009 — read more here.
“Tea With Cinnamon” mixes sweetly sung vocals, pop-sensible lyrics and a melody that blends manic, accordion-accented polka, straightforward folk-rock, and carnival-esque flute and cymbals; it’s a full on tilt-a-whirl of sound.
Catch the spectacle live when Katzenjammer hits the road this summer, including a slot at Lilith Fair alongside artists like Tegan and Sara, Metric, and Sia. See the fest’s site for dates.
