Boomkat Product Review:
I don’t know what they do to their youngsters up in Iceland but I’m sure it’s not the first time I’ve heard a record made by a troupe of kids with xylophones and nylon-strung guitars. Maybe I’m just getting confused, but the fact that this femme foursome recorded this debut album at fourteen is still pretty astonishing. Now sixteen years old, their record is finally out for all to hear, and rather than sounding juvenile ‘Pascal Pinon’ rather sounds like a deliriously lo-fidelity combination of Mum and Paavoharju. There is definitely the fingerprint of the Scandinavian underground to this four-piece, but their age possibly helped them to distance themselves from one particular scene or another. The hopefulness and joy on ‘Kerti Og Husi Brann’ or ‘New Beginning’ is contagious. Singing in a mixture of English and Icelandic, these songs are like little vignettes, uncluttered and just simple enough to stick in the mind. It’s hard to listen to Pascal Pinon and not feel like you’re being wrapped up in cotton wool – and how can you argue with that?
