Razika was a Norwegian alternative indie pop[1] band from Møhlenpris, Bergen with various indie rock, punk, ska and reggae influences.[2] While their early work featured some tracks in English, they primarily composed songs in their native Norwegian. In 2010, they were signed to the Smalltown Supersound label and have released four albums: Program 91 (in 2011),[3] På vei hjem (in 2013), Ut til de andre (in 2015) and Sånn Kjennes Verden Ut (in 2018). Exhibiting more of a synth pop style, their fourth studio represented a stylistic departure from their previous work. Razika split up in 2019 after the summer festival season.
