Epic, broken-hearted piano ballads that recall prime Prince and electropop symphonies that glide through warped electronics, speaker-popping R’n’B spasms, tip-toeing Bjorklike flights of fancy and Motown string flourishes are all on the plate here.
A remarkable Oslo trio centred round the rich, haunting songs of Turid Solberg (pronounced Tue-rid). These sophisticated pop tunes hit you straight away in both the heart and the hips with their frank lyrics, giant choruses, crispy beats and effortlessly spare yet lush arrangements.
Songs from the debut elpee Take It Personal on Norweigan label, Brilliance have been causing ripples in the blogworld and word about their weird, charismatic and theatrical live show has led to dates being offered across Europe and the US.
It’s only after listening to the album on the headphones that you start to notice that Turid’s instant pop songs are very carefully cast on an inspired array of instrumentation and twisty production tics, courtesy of the two gentlemen of Philco Fiction, Anders and Bjarne.
