I’ve made no secret of how much I like Andreas Moe. He’s making huge impact over in native Sweden for his effortlessly catchy and beautifully stylish songs. Anyway, he’s finally coming over to the UK to plug his sounds via his new debut EP Collecting Sunlight on June 25th, and so it feels only right to give it a mention.
Having played in several bands in Sweden, and having leant his voice to a number of dance tracks, he signed his first UK publishing deal in January 2011. His collaborations already include DJ Avicii (Fade into Darkness) and John de Sohn (Long Time).
Last week it was Friendly Fires making good noise with a Lady Gaga track, this week it’s Robyn covering what is in my view one of the best pop songs of 2011 by Coldplay. It’s got that minimal, cold Scandi vibe Robyn does so well.
I first saw these two Swedish club DJ’s when they were the warm up act for Robyn at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire. They’ve now got their own single, and it sounds a bit like something Robyn would sing herself, which is a good thing. Check out here.
I love Robyn (as you might have guessed if you’re a regular on here). Video’s great, even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the song when I first heard it but watching this makes me change my mind. Gonna dance like her next time I’m rockin’ the discotheque.
