Brott och Straff, who last year appeared as a duo and gave us a new electropop single every month, is now a solo project run by the songwriter Kim Nilsson. Today the first single “Livet asså” is being released, a single which is also the first taste of the upcoming EP “Molnen över dig”. As you would expect, the sound has also changed, from a club based beat to a more pop-sounding vibe overall. The lyrics were written half an hour after the birth of Kim’s son and tell us about life as a roller coaster, which is reflected in the song in the darker verse and the the catchy, light chorus.
David Josephson started this Autumn with a single release of a song from his latest album “Drömmaskinen”. And I think that’s a good move since it’s a great, personal and varied pop album, that certainly deserves some more attention. The song is “När tiden har blivit vårt hem” which here comes in a new version with new mix.
The quartet Two Year Vacation from Göteborg started last Winter out of a longing to escape a cold and windy season. And the music feels that way too, like a sunny, early Springday wrapped in a cheerful and a bit dreamy indie pop. “Canned Heat” is the only single so far, but more songs are on their way soon.
Here’s the second single from Rideau, “Ecstasy”, a song where they pick up the speed and seem to have pushed all the sweaty rock energy they’ve got into the track. It’s frenetic rock with a stroke of metal and hardcore but they have their own path just outside these genres. They even surprise with a brilliant saxophone solo! in the middle of the song. Hopfully we get to hear an album from the band soon.
