Taragana Pyjarama’s First Album Breaks Waves in Denmark
Nick Erickson, a 22 year old from Denmark is making waves in in the United States music world. The sound is very deep, layered and smooth. At times, their self titled album sounds much like an IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) track, but it follows through with catchy, upbeat melodies. While many of the elements in the album sound foreign (they are), there is a familiarity that reminds one of the electronicy ‘chillwave’ bands of 2010 (Gold Panda, Baths, and the early Toro y Moi).
Other than the name of the artist, little has been released about Taragna Pyjarama, despite being very popular in Denmark (they were rated #3 for 2010 in a fairly prestigious blog), however, they are anticipated to tour in America soon.
