I had never heard of this band before and to be honest this is not realy my kinda music.
This four-piece out of Oslo, Norway, juggles 80s powerpop against a classic 70s rock swagger, like Cheap Trick meets Bad Company with a bit of old school Aerosmith / James Gang funkiness thrown in there too.
Inspired by the usual suspects, Himora still put their own stamp on things. The discerning listener will recognize several influences, but for the most part, Himora dance the night away in their own right. If you´re into 70s - 80s melodic rock that veers slightly off the beaten path and if you enjoy the occasional wisecrack lyric, (think Joe Walsh, Fagen,Zappa)
The quality of the songs here are surprisingly well done and consistent.
The sound is a mix of earlier styles mentioned above with some new age alternative groove, think Foo Fighters or King of Leon, except a lot of better then those bands.
You’ll have listen for yourself okay?
