Danish electropop sensation Fallulah is breaking new ground with “Social Club”, her newest single sprinkled with snappy hand claps and powered by a catchy-as-hell chorus. Having entranced the Danish music scene with her first two albums The Black Cat Neighbourhood (2010) and Escapism (2013), Fallulah remains one of the most underrated Scandinavian artists outside her native Denmark.
With “Social Club”, which was written in one go sitting in her friend’s kitchen in LA, she delivers the kind of infectious track that will blow your recommended daily intake of punchy pure pop goodness. Produced with the help of Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, FKA Twigs) and recorded in London, this is the first taste of Fallulah’s upcoming third studio album, set to drop in early 2016.
Born in Djura (population 400) in the dark woods of Sweden, Karin Park was first a pop star in Norway with her 2004 debut Superworldunknown, before she started collaborating with Datarock’s Fredrik Saroea on her following album Ashes To Gold, and with UK-based Barry Barnett on 2013’s Highwire Poetry.
Her new album, Apocalypse Pop, was released on 2nd March 2015 and definitely marks another chapter in her career of sonic experimentalism, taking things into an even darker soundscape.
Often compared to The Knife or Robyn, Park is an artist and singer famed for her riveting live sets which always leave audiences across the globe yearning for more. Effortlessly combining electronica, industrial and synthpop with her unique voice, Karin Park has been getting some well-deserved attention in recent months and shouldn’t remain Scandinavian pop’s best kept secret much longer.
Need some sun-kissed electropop to listen to by the pool now that the summer is finally here? Swedish synth pop duo Sameblod have got just what you want! Released June 15th, their new single “My Fortune” is the perfect combination of catchy singalong vocals, pulsating beats and layers of magnificent synths.
Helmed by Frederick Rundqvist and Mikael Mattisson, Sameblod was created in 2011, bringing together a wide range of influences to create a unique sound, cool mix of arctic indietronica with a twist of balearic sunshine. Keep an ear out for new tunes!
Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, unveiled her new album Working Girl a couple of days ago to generally positive reviews (4 **** from Q Magazine, The Times, The Telegraph). This third full-length is also quite a statement for the synthpop diva turned business woman who, having left behind the major label machine, now runs her own label On Repeat Records. Hence the title and the song “Working Girl”, which was written with fellow On Repeat associate Tom Aspaul and one of the UK’s most sought after producers Grades.
This new album was produced by Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Lukens, MNDR‘s Pete Wade, and Com Truise. Filled with her signature icy synths, airy vocals and well-crafted catchy melodies, the 13-song LP might not be an extremely adventurous album but it delivers the kind of sugar pop with hints of nineties dance music one expects from Little Boots.
The Working Girl Tour kicked off in style with a sold-out London show last week, featuring special guest Femme. The tour will be continuing across the USA starting in LA and closing in Washington, calling in San Francisco, New York and Boston on the way.

Born in the remote Scottish Borders, Monogram is the brainchild of guitarist and producer Liam Rutherford. Imaginatively DIY and strikingly sincere, his music generously draws on big reverbed drums, classical piano, howling guitars, triumphant choir… all wrapped into one big drama. Following sparkling debut song “Romance”, here’s the new single “Anno” in all its big-drum-jangly-guitar’d glory.
This new tune is an epic post pop anthem Monogram crafted in an isolated little cabin in the Scottish countryside. Featuring lush guitar arrangements, almost tribal drums and powerful vocals, “Anno” is a swirling multi-layered song that that looks set to become the triumphant soundtrack to your long summer drives.
