So to kick off the week, another song from Tegan & Sara. I've said it before but every time I come across another track from them it bears repeating; giving them a listen is one of the best musical decisions I've made this year. Doesn't matter if it's a ballad or pop anthem, their music is just full of so much energy it's impossible not to like them. The video doesn't seem to have a story to it which is a minor letdown, but lyricall and musically this song is solid. Their album 'Love You To Death' is out now
Ok this videos weird as hell. I have no idea what's going on with it & attempting to watch it through gave me a headache. I like the music and the lyrics are ok but when you have a dance band/duo featuring a vocalist on their song, it lives and dies with the vocalist; if they're strong it's a smashing success & if they're weak well the whole song falls apart. With this here Susanne Sundfør is what makes the song. Similar to The Chainsmokers who earlier this year released 'Don't Let Me Down' which featured Daya; it was a smash because of her & whilst follow-up's have been ok, they haven't quite hit that same level. This song's somewhat of a throwback to the 80's, which I'm not exactly hating either & this will be glued to my phone for the next few months at the very least. Röyksopp are a Norwegian electronic music duo & Susanne is a Norwegian singer/songwriter.
