The Swedish twee pop group, Club 8, have returned with their first new single since last years Golden Island album. The track is called The Hospital and the band seems to have abandoned their traditional twee sound in favor of a more aggressive synth sound similar to Ladytron.
Swedish electro-pop artist Daybehavior is no stranger to Strangeways Radio. We have been playing them for almost 10 years featuring several of their singles, albums and EP’s. Today the band released their 4th studio album “Based On A True Story”
This one got super interesting from the get-go. Opening with a syncopated drum beat that could have been lifted from a Spector-era Girl Group, shortly after to be joined by a bass line hearkening to Joy Division’s Transmission and then Synths?
Apparently, this is the summer of infectious female-led synthpop jams. You know what? I’m quite ok with this. Meanwhile, the video is all sorts of Retro invoking the look of Deee-Lite and Austin Powers at the same time.
