Code 64 - Storm
Synthpop, Futurepop Code 64 comes from the little village Lysekil which is located about 120km north of Gothenburg and the band name is partly a tribute to the cult computer Commendore 64. This band has recently signed to the Norwegian label Angel Productions were you also find artists like Panzerveps, Gothminister and Zensor.

The debut album 'Storm' is a hum-along friendly electro production with some EBM elements, but also some tones from softer electro pop. Songs like "Resistance", "Without You" and "Finding Me" makes this album so perfect for the dance floors that the CD practically find its way out from the CD-case, jumps in to the CD-player and even press the play button. Henrik Piehls voice does have the right standard and hopefully it sounds as good live as it does on the album.

The first time I listened to this record I thought it was all daily and not new thinking at any level at all, but after a few times my opinion changed to the better and now I think Code 64 have successfully made their own personal touch to this production. A new funny inlay to the otherwise boring Swedish electro scene.
