A-Ha - Analogue

Short bio:a-ha is a Norwegian New Wave band who were most popular in the UK and the USA during the 1980s, but continued to be globally successful in the 1990s and 2000s. The trio, composed of lead vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, formed in 1983 and left Norway for London in order to make a career in the music business. The origin of the name a-ha comes from the title of an early song. Originally, Paul had used the word 'a-ha' as the title of a song.

Review:Every track on this album really deserves a mention, but you wouldn't want to read that so I'll be brief. 'Birthright' shows exactly what this album is made of, beautifully melodic piano topped by the most perfectly sung lyrics and backed up with some subdued drumming. A well placed Moog synth in the chorus adds emphasis and importance, inspired song writing indeed. Analogue shows real maturity from a-Ha making them seem far removed from the floppy haired synth pop group of the 80's grown.

As their previous record shows a-Ha are legendary pop stars but with this album they have proved their ability as song writers. Analogue is out now so go check out a copy or see them live in December around London.
