MIC’s Listen to Norway profile series continues with Dingobats’ Pck album.


This strong quintet has its background from Trondheim’s prestigious jazz conservatory. The Dingobats tunes on Pck are far from academic though. With a strong disregard of genre the spirited collective blasts through up-tempo stuff with such energy they rival most rock bands. Dingobats’ repertoire is however more complex than your average three-chord riffs– saxophonist Eirik Hegdal writes arrangements with rich harmonies and unexpected melodic twists. Dingobats master the difficult skill of dynamic playing – much evident in the album’s more understated and down-tempo numbers. Pck is rich in contrasts, and will reward active listeners with a taste of new and fresh sounds.
