a-ha: Foot Of The Mountain

The new a-ha drops today (their ninth release) and the first single is already on the charts around the world. Sadly, tone deaf America will not be getting the release, though I’m predicting a hipster appreciation of a-ha coming soon (with me as avatar of course). Regardless, here’s the video for “Foot of the Mountain,” the titluar song that has the band’s archetypal electronic expansive melodic chorus. Morten Harkett’s voice still has its sweeping scope over Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy‘s inspired music. I especially think Waaktar-Savoy is one of the finest pop song writers eva and his side band Savoy’s 1995 “Mary Is Coming” one of the great discs of the decade. Tell me what you think.
