ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rock\'n\'roll revolution? The revolution of the new economy? Revolutionary rise and fall of the western democracy? No matter which one: the revolution is over - and it\'s time for karoshi.

Karoshi Lovers was formed at Helsinki, Finland in the spring of 2007 when Ms. Stress (vocals, keyboards), Kid Karoshi (guitar, vocals) and Joy-R (drums) wanted to create a new concept to the overwhelming pop markets. Ms. Stress ran into the Japanese term \"karoshi\" by accident on the internet. The word means \"sudden death from overwork\". The trio arrived at the same conclusion that Karoshi sums up the western world around us: fast working life and death at a young age. The group\'s unique sound is the result of the trio line-up.

So far Karoshi Lovers has been compared to the artists such as 22-Pistepirkko, ABBA, Tori Amos, Animal Alpha, Fiona Apple, Arcade Fire, B-52\'s, Bauhaus, Pat Benatar, Björk, Block Party, Blonde Redhead, Blondie, Blur, Chumbawamba, The Church, The Doors, Editors, Eläkeläiset, E-Type, Eurythmics, Garbage, Nina Hagen, Horrorpops, Rowland S. Howard, Jefferson Airplane, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Kostajat, Leevi And The Leavings, Lipps Inc., Lydia Lynch, Nylon 66\'ers, Edith Piaf, Pixies, PJ Harvey, Sigur Ros, Patti Smith, Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Sounds, Stolen Babies, Tiger Army, Unun, Velvet Underground and White Stripes.

\"Album Of The Week\"
Salon Seudun Sanomat / Mauri Mäkynen

\"The female vocalist leads the album from one atmosphere to another, though there\'s flat roughness of post punk in the background. \"K Girl\" is a good example, Blondie meets the distortion of dark scale of colours. \"Only The Good Die Young\" has already hit potential. \"Birth, School, Work, Death\" sounds pleasantly old, feisty rocking with punk nuances. \"I Love My Karoshi\" and \"Hold Tight\" are tied together as elegant play of reedy shadows, cool.\" *** 1/2
Mesta.net / J.A.Kaunisto

\"Karoshi Lovers is at its best in the ambitious piano-led pop operas, where Ms. Stress\' vocals shine. For example \'Down In The Ice Pit\' is a dramatic song with a capital D. Also \'I Love My Karoshi\' is a glorious ballad supported by Rhodes piano. Blondie and Garbage influenced pop tracks work out great too.\" ***
Rumba / Markku Roinila
