The duo behind the Newtimers are a shining result of their Swedish musical ancestry demonstrating lyrical skill, flawless composition and the right amount of glitter.
The Stockholm based artist delivers an organic sound blended with cinematic Nordic cool and experimental R&B/Pop production.
Sung in Swedish, LÖRDAG (Saturday) is a celebration of the best day of the week.
Strange as it might seem, Swedish people don’t cross the road unless the green man at the crossing is lit. Even if they see no cars for miles in any direction, they’ll wait patiently until they’re told it’s safe to cross.
Most people dress the same, eat at the most ‘hip’ places and listen to the same popular artists. It’s one of the many idiosyncrasies, often conservative, that I discovered in Sweden.
The single on the new album from Swedish electro/pop trio Artymove sums up the band’s response to their country’s national reserve: “Fuck That!”
That’s why I love them.
