Label: Jansen Records
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Drama - of the interpersonal kind - that's what Hajk are about on their new album. The band burst onto the Norwegian scene with their acclaimed 2017 self-titled debut, garnering broad appreciation way outside of their home country. Now, the highly anticipated follow-up is here - a record that both pulls at the heartstrings and urges you to dance. A more confident band is on display and sharpened by more studio experience, they've once again produced the record themselves. Blending analogue and digital sounds, switching between programmed arrangements and live takes from the studio, drawing on three lead vocalists and several guest musicians, Hajk has done whatever necessary to fulfill their creative vision. The title relates to the Drama of humanity and a somewhat naïve yearning for love in a world in which love sometimes seems scarce. It's been a while since the band recorded the songs for their debut and you can hear an urgency throughout. We get the simple but grand ballads and we get the catchy up-tempo pop songs. In short, Drama.
