Flunk hails from the same land as RÖyksopp and Kings of Convenience: Norway.

Flunk hails from the same land as Röyksopp and Kings of Convenience: Norway. And in a nod to both acts, this quartet seamlessly and beautifully puts the electronic into folk music and vice versa. Very late-night, bordering on a jam-like mentality, For Sleepyheads Only grooves along at a relaxed pace, which makes it perfect for a Sunday afternoon or some post-club, chilled-out bliss. Anji's sublime vocals on the act's acoustic cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" is worth the price of admission alone. But don't overlook "Honey's in Love," which recalls the stylings of one of the original neo-soul sirens, ambersunshower. On a track like "Magic Potion," Flunk veers into Massive Attack territory, Jamaica by way of Bristol.—MP
