On February 23 the Stockholm/Malmö based pop group Testbild! will release their new album 'Belka & Strelka' on Kalligrammofon. Testbild! are known for a number of conceptual albums, where melodic and cinematic pop is blended with influences from 60's jazz and avant garde excursions in sound. Belka & Strelka is no exception, but stands out in their discography as an album in which the electronic elements, especially the use of analogue synths, takes a more prominent position. No guitars were used on the recordings.
Belka & Strelka will be released in physical form as a limited vinyl version in 249 copies, beautifully designed by Richard Heberling and Jacob Grönbech Jensen. The album is also accompanied by a 30 minute film by Sebastian Rozenberg.
