Those Dancing Days have finally released what should have been their debut single. Irresistible Swedish pop music rooted firmly in gloomy 80’s dance music, with sounds that could/should be massive on the global music charts. Still, even though this is served with a heavy dose of listenability, it holds onto that blown-out sound and garage aesthetics.
Listening to this again, I am surprised that this has yet to make its way into the public conscience yet (or at the very least, the pits of the mp3 blogging circle jerk or a spotlight from Pitchfork, who love nothing more than to champion underdog pop music), but I guess that is just how these things go. A-side, “Hitten” is best-case scenario, and while the b-side to this suffers a bit in comparison, it manages to hold its own with its infectious Blondie-esq hooks. Love this.
