The duo Italian String Machine, Victor Hvidfeldt and Joel Lindström, are releasing their debut EP “New Nostalgia” on Monday. “Nostalgic futurism and dance to a Vangelis soundtrack” they write about the four songs on the EP. And I can certainly hear the eighties nostalgia with quite a dose of synth pop from that decade, while some other touches suggest that they have the other foot in the electro pop soil of today. I presented one of the songs, the excellent “Neuromancer”, last time I wrote about them, but the other songs are just as good. Here are two of them:
Daniel & Daniel – “The Code of Colour” – EP
Daniel Lindquist and Daniel Forsberg form the duo Daniel & Daniel and have recently released their fourth EP, “The Code of Colour”, recorded in a barn in the deep forests of Småland, close to Markaryd.

Adna, whom I wrote about in the end of last year, released her debut album “Night” just a little while ago. Here’s the title track from the album, filled to the brim with beautiful melancholy.
Franskild is a house duo that consist of Love Ojensa and Tim Söderström. Their first release this year is this suggestive, melancholic electro pop song “Clockworks”, which appeals, at least to me, a lot more than the high octane house music popular today.
