Lctrisc – “The Closer That We Get”

Lctrisc let us peek a bit more at their debut album with the new single “The Closer That We Get”. This time they have added soul and disco flavours to their playful, catchy electro pop.

Veronica Keding – “Det är slut nu”

Veronica Keding, whom I wrote about in the Autumn, has continued to release new songs since then, and earlier this year she launched this single “Det är slut nu” (“It’s over now”). This time it’s darker, no surprise considering the subject, and with a tasty balance between house synths and hammering bass lines. Love the crescendo in the end which makes me think of Swedish synth pop from the eigthies when Lustans Lakejer had their big days.

Leppen – “Iställetförattprata” – EP

A couple of weeks ago Leppen released the EP I mentioned a couple of times as I wrote about the earlier singles. The overall theme on the EP is an unexpected crush he went through in Summer 2012 and which turned his life upside down. The third song “Inte en sekund till” is just as strong as the earlier singles:

Cmbstn – “My Friend” – video

Combstn:s song “My Friend“, is out now as a music video also, and it certainly deserve attention. They write that the video will be followed by a second part, which will be released soon when the next single “One of Us” is launched.

Boeoes Kaelstigen – “Be the Lights”

The duo Boeoes Kelstigen are back with a new single, the dreamy and beautiful “Be the Lights”. The song was co-written together with Hanna Brandún, more known as Name the Pet. As a b-side they have added their excellent, retrosynth-sounding cover of Icona Pop’s song “Just Another Night”.

From drömpop to rock with Dream Lake, Leppen, The Gloria Story and The Shy Lips

The Shy Lips

The Shy Lips

Dream Lake

Dreamlake, hailing from Stockholm, is a duo formed by Isabella Swärdstam och Niklas Willar Lidholm. In the Autumn they released their debut EP with five tracks, and a couple of weeks ago the video to “In The Lights” from the EP. They call their music dream pop, which is a suitable description to these beautiful, grand-sounding and soft pop songs. Here are a couple of songs from the EP, the video I mentioned above and also a new disco-influenced remix signed Ludvig Thunberg.

Leppen – “Iställetförattprata”

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Leppen’s single “Sova“. Today he shows us another song from the upcoming EP “Iställetförattprata” (April 28th), namely the title track. There’s a video to the last single “Sova” too, which I missed the last time..

The Gloria Story – “Born to Lose” – video

A couple of days ago the hard rock band The Gloria Story released the second single from last year’s album “Born to Lose“. They’ve chosen to present the song in this well-cut tour video:

The Shy Lips – “She Was Born In Bahia”

I’m glad that The Shy Lips from Göteborg is back here in the blog with the new single “She Was Born In Bahia”. I find it difficult to defend myself against this, just like with songs I wrote about last year. “Indie rock at it’s best” it says in the promo mail, and I’m inclined to agree with that.
