A Song A Day: Pallecco – ‘Pyramidspelet’


Swedish band Pallecco are strange… I wasn’t sure what to make of their track ‘Pyramidspelet’ when it first arrived in my inbox but, the more I hear it, the more I love it.

I always ask for an explanation about each track I post about as I think it’s best hearing what’s inside of the brains of the artists I promote on the blog.

Taking off as nordic folk music the song attempts a journey through the listeners imagination and exits in what we refer to as the pyramid-game (“Pyramidspelet” is the swedish translation derived mainly from the ancient egyptian sounding outro/climax of the song. The name is also a play on words, doubling as a ponzi scheme). We usually don’t imbue definitive meanings to our music. It’s all up to the listeners interpretation. But one might argue the song is really all about a hobbitlike creature telling tales about its adventures, if you are as weird as us that is.

If I had to compare this to anything I would say imagine retro computer game music spliced with Mr. Bungle, chucked into a Prog blender and mixed around a couple of times. Brilliant!
