2012 – Kaipa – Vittjar

A new album by Swedish folk/progressive rock legends with their distinctive 70’s retro style updated to 2012. At times Patrik Lundström reminds a bit of Freddy Mercury. Distinctive and rather unique about this band is also the male/female interaction in singing between Lundström and Aleena Gibson.

That also adds a bit to the Queen-like harmonies in some of the songs here, and also on several of their other albums. When you like this style, then simply buy this record. All high quality.
