Swedish electro-pop had a great couple of years. Think of Robyn’s phenomenal year back in 2010. Since then Lykke Li, Rebecca & Fiona, Iamamiwhoami, and this year, Niki & the Dove and Icona Pop, all made names for them self’s outside their native country.
Driven by a heavy bass line and dark metallic synths, ”Northern lights” has a lot in common with the above mentioned names and draws inspiration from The Knifes Silent Shout. Kate Boy could well be the next Swedish pop sensation. It’s mystical and dark with a catchy chorus that will appeal to a broader crowd. Kate Boy consists of three former Swedish producers and an Australian musician. Oskar Gullstrand from The Sound of Arrows has produced the video, other than that there isn’t much information to be found.
