The blend of indie attitude and electronic energy can be hard to pull off at times, but we think Norwegians Das Body pull it off with considerable finesse. Have a listen – we’re sure you’ll agree with us.
There’s a deliciously lo-fi feel to the track, as it takes a dollop of clubbed up indie rock, keeps the energy and hedonism, then filters it all through layers of comforting synths and wry but pleasing vocals.
Confident in itself and knowing enough to not to reel you in by simply rocking out, it takes a harder but more satisfying route, letting the craftmanship and care evident in the song do that with ease.
Graceland is out now on the major digital platforms including Spotify and will feature on Das Body’s upcoming self-titled debut EP, which is out September 28th on Luminelle Recordings. You can find out more here.
