One of the most interesting new bands in Croatia last in year was Drvored. The group has nine members, so it is obvious they have many ideas about how to refine their sound.

They are a pop-rock band with major influence from world music, most of all music from Balkan, so they call their style Balkankan. Last autumn, they released their debut album “Arhelino” with 14 songs which all of them are very characteristic.

“Baš sam sretan” (“I’m so happy”) is the latest single. Here we can hear very retro sound from Dalmatia with music elements from across the Balkan area, especially in the rhythm and brass section.

You can stream “Arhelino” LP here.
