Quite appropriately ‘Science of the Lamps’ was dreamt up by Norwegian Liverpool musician Kaya in an off the beaten track restaurant in the fairytale darkness of the city of Prague in December 2010, although it took another year to realise the project. A band perfect for festivals and encompassing all that is music, storytelling, art, creative flair, melancholy and silliness - framed in catchy songs, lyrical gems and outstanding musicianship from the quirky band. Their inspiration comes from vaudeville, visual art, early Hollywood movie scores, Nordicana, wine, flamenco, trip-hop, music boxes, Paris and whiskey bars.
“music that proudly smacks their audience in the face, their theatrical flair and overwhelming passion for the music”
“An alluring hybrid of driving rock and burlesque blues.”
“It’s oId Pop in its nicest possible form, the song writing ticking all those imaginary boxes”
“hauntingly melodic yet a little dirty at the same time.”
