Even though it’s been less than a year since their last release, Norwegian duo Konradsen is back with a new EP, Rodeo No. 5 coming in May. With that they’ve just dropped the lead single “The Year Is Over” sheds light on a fuller sound and a growth in songwriting.
What the track reveals is a bit more experimentation of sounds and how they play together. The pacing of the song is laid back but not sleepy, while the dual vocals add a soft luster to the track. The pop hooks mix well with the grander scale of the songwriting, retracing a more upbeat sound that’s hard to walk away from. The way the chorus hits is strong but not in a muscular way. It just lingers inside your memory as soon as it plays.
The single can be streamed above. The new EP Rodeo No. 5 can be preordered directly from Cascine on multiple formats ahead of its May 01 release.
