Lukestar

Besides Great Britian and North America, it could be argued Scandinavia are the most dexterous when it comes to molding stupendous indie. If it's worth me toting up a few names to back up my avowal, I'm talking Bjork, Sigur Ros, The Hives, The Cardigans, erm, Abba. A radio-sociable record and a whole lot more attention, and Lukestar could too be in transit for mega-huge rock star greatness. Based in Oslo, Norway, the five-piece got underway in '95, and alloy wholesome Pavement indie and hardcore punk like no other. 'White Shade' sashays in all kinds of directions, but they pull it off gleamingly. Power to the math rock. Power to Lukestar.
