Remarkably, given both the prevalence and our love of Swedish pop music, we think this is the first time in the last 23 hours that we have featured any. For shame we say to ourselves (hey, we told you we’d end up talking to ourselves) we’d best put that right. And so we are, with a track we stumbled upon in the small hours and have been holding to one side, ready to post this morning.
Sounding wonderfully bright and Scandinavian, School are a four-piece from Göteborg and with their latest slice of indie pop they have quite literally pushed the “Clouds Aside” to leave us with a dazzling blue sky. It’s a carefree summer’s day of a tune; vibrant and uplifting guitars take you by the hand and lead you off on a run through the cornfields, the warm vocals brushing the tops of the plants as you pass by. Alice Botéus’ ahhhhhhhhh’s drift out beyond the horizon like a bird soaring through the air as the whole song lifts you up, weightless and floating on its sunshine melody.
