“Kaada is the best thing to come out of Norway since Leif Erikson set sail for America”
“It seems like you can always count on some know-it-all from Europe to put an interestingly bent take on classically American music“
“Once again, the fair nation of Norway has dropped an innovative music bomb, this time in the form of quirky, pop art mad artist Kaada”
