Swedes and good pop come together like honey on a spoon – delicious.
I’m losing count of the amount of times I’ve heard an amazing track and found out it’s from the country responsible for the awkward moment you walk into a house knowing exactly where they’ve bought the forks, sofa, curtains – even the meatballs.
Kate Boy are another great Swedish musical export. Although amongst the four of them is a sneaky Australian.
Their label IAMSOUND have announced Kate Boy have got a debut EP Northern Lights coming out on 22 January 2013. If from what I’ve heard so far is anything to go by, they’ll sell bucket loads.
The EP’s title track Northern Lights is a clean cut electro pop track with hints of griminess and you can hear it here on their funky video:
In Your Eyes is the song accompanying Northern Lights. It’s got a much more flavour taken from The Knife but that’s no bad thing is it.
