One of my favorite Swedish bands is back with a new single/video, “Love Child.” They have sort of a kitschy, glossy, pop sound that’s total bliss once you get used to it. Basically they take their sonic aesthetics from what’s typically viewed as an “uncool” source – soft rock like Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, Hall & Oates, the Doobie Brothers, etc – and somehow transform it into something relevant in the late ’00s. While you’re waiting for the new album, I suggest you check out their previous album, Emotional. It’s a good starting point.
