TRACK SHOWCASE: BRISKEBY'S "ASPHALT BEACH"

"I don't believe we can believe anymore..."


A song from Norwegian electro-pop band Briskeby, this is the one song from their discography that haunts me long after I moved on to other artists. It's beautiful, hazy, and cutting, as it tears apart the building superficiality of society. The above line is the core of the song, a reaction to the shallowness of the cult of 'beauty' and the advancing of so-called 'progress', while losing anything deep or real about our lives.

Wonderful stuff, worthy of recognition.

And don't forget, search for more at The Hype Machine; purchase albums or mp3's at Amazon, Amazon Canada, Amie St., cdbaby, or Insound.

Ah, easily one of the best Briskeby songs. However, I'd give a listen to 'Bobby, Come Back' and 'Ocean Drive', if you haven't. Two pretty neat tracks in their discography.

I'd say listen to anything by them. But I'm biased.
