As of April 2012, Norwegian ‘folktronica’ band Flunk are celebrating the ten year
anniversary of the release of their acclaimed debut album For Sleepyheads Only.
Before moving to their next step, Flunk has chosen to commemorate this decade-long achievement with The Songs We Sing - Best Of 2002-2012, a collection that not only gathers sixteen highlights from the band’s career but also pairs this with twelve excellent remixes of their original tracks.
Its trip-hop beats and gentle guitar melodies merged with Anja’s lovely vocals captured the ears of fans all over the globe.
Subsequent albums by the band explored moodier and more experimental sounds while
maintaining their melodic, bittersweet pop vibe.
On Songs We Sing, highlights from all of Flunk’s albums are collected, including big hits like “Blue Monday” and “Play,” download-only rarities like “On The Balcony” and “Common Sense,” and live favorites like “Sit Down.” The bonus disc features a varied assortment of remixes of Flunk’s favorite tracks, produced mainly by Norwegian electronic artists.
Here are a few tracks so you can get the vibe.
