Elisabeth Robson from louderthanwar interview Anne Marit and Solveig:
LTW: What I love about Katzenjammer is that you have brought harmonising back – like the 60’s – All of your voices are so beautiful and distinctive – it brings up essences of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Joan Baez, etc…
SH: Well, instantly, I think we take a lot of influences from the music from “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou” – there’s like a southern bluegrass vibe to our harmonising. I think we take influences from all those things. But because of the instruments we use, all acoustic, we need something to sew it all together. Harmonising does that well.
We may also have forgotten to tell you about Elisabeth´s excellent review of A Kiss Before you Go. To wit, a sample:
There are 100 different sounds going on, delicious harmonies and handsome melodies. Bawdy and tempting without being sickly sweet or overtly femme, just a strikingly beautiful array of tunes with a tongue-in-cheek wink at caricature – a distinguished nod to burlesque. Having seen them live, I can assure you Katzenjammer are not ‘girlie’ in the slightest. They are LOUD. And PUNK. And awesome. A truly incredible live band – beg, borrow or steal to see them.
