Norwegian shoegazers ‘The Needs’ channel 90s power pop on new album

Featuring members of Kverlertak and winners of Norwegian Grammys, shoegazers The Needs have dropped their debut album

Taking their cues from the likes of RIDE and Teenage Fanclub, the band’s debut record is inspired by the adrenaline withdrawal that professional musicians experience between tours – days spent on the beaches, time spent with loyal dogs.

The line-up is completed by Brænne’s older brother and former scientist Mattis, drummer and possessor of the most Norwegian sounding name of all time Nills Jørgen Nilsen, and Knut-Oscar Nymo of punk rockers Oslo Ess.
