Death In The Afternoon – ’82

DITA

DITA

Death In The Afternoon (DITA) is a Scandenaivna electronic duo, formed of Christian and Linda.

With the current media age, there are no boundaries for musicians to team up and produce a track remotely across the globe from one another. This is exactly what DITA have done with new song, ‘’82’.

Airy, dreamy and filled with sky high vocal lines and a sense of melancholia, this is one beautiful death in the afternoon.

Listen below.

’82 will be released via Summer Heart’s label Sommarhjärta, and it will be available for sale and download everywhere from the 28 August.

Sounds like: Anteros, M83, MGMT, Young Galaxy, Summer Heart, Goldroom, Karl Kling, RAC, Washed Out, Day Wave

RAINDEAR – Veins

RAINDEAR

RAINDEAR

Not another Swedish synthpop songstress I hear you scream!

But there is something slightly different and magical about this one. RAINDEAR (aka Rebecca Bergcrantz) is more than another indie electro femme from Scandinavia .

Her new track ‘Veins’ frequently changes tempo and is highly disco in parts. Not your usual ethereal ballad.

She describes the track as being “about that kind of destructive love that you stick with ‘cause you love the rush, but you secretly know it’s bad for you. This is the addictive kind of love you can feel for a lover or for a friend or anything really and it’s of the kind that is almost warlike and comes from a very dark place.”

Have a listen to the WTNSS remix too:

Purchase ‘Veins’ on iTunes here.

Sounds like: Little Dragon, WTNSS, Ballet School, Kate Boy, Lykke Li, Phantogram, Santigold, SBTRKT, CSS

Thea & The Wild – Heartattack

Thea & The Wild

Thea & The Wild

Classic scandi-pop Thea & The Wild is the project of Thea Glenton Raknes.

‘Heartattack’ is the latest song from her album ‘Strangers And Lovers’. The melodic synth-based track twinkles with classic folk and pop.

“The songs I have made for this album is “pop” the way I like it; with clear choruses and lively melodies and rhythms. The lyrics may be a little dark, as I tend to write them from what struggles I have in my head. This is a record you can listen to while you dream of falling in love or reminisce about heartbreak”, says Thea about her upcoming album.

The success of her record in Norway has led to a UK release for the album ‘Strangers And Lovers’, released 12 January 2015 on Jansen Plateproduksjon. Order on iTunes here.
