Stockholm spells youth this time around with electronica duo, Sameblod. Composed of Mikael Mattison and Frederick Rundqvist, the pair captures the late night mischief of those old enough to know better, but young enough not to care–rolling synth pads, Blackbird Blackbird like beats, and an overall uplifting sound. While the vocals are akin to the style of fellow Nordic crooner, Jónsi , Sameblod’s tracks veer more toward 80s pop, complete with neon visions and matching Ray-Bans.
“UR Road” pirouettes about atmospheric while “Loud” may well serve as a summer anthem in the same way that a few Empire of the Sun tracks did a couple of years back. With a dash of reverb and soft, fuzzy lyrical meanderings, every track put out by Sameblod is flat-out entertaining and fun–tinged with the party vibe.
