those dancing days are here again

Sweden is far from being underestimated when it comes to music. After all, it's the birthplace to one of the greatest acts in history (you don't want me to tell you the 4-letter name of that act). It is also the place for an ongoing wave of young talents, destined to get out of the freezy scandinavian weather and into the global scope of pop and rock.

Take notice on Indie outfit Those Dancing Days. Formed in 2005, this five-piece group of keaboardist Lisa, guitarrist Rebecka, basist Mimmi, drummer Cissi and superb vocalist Linnea has been turning heads thanks to their alternative sound and cute but energetic pressence on stage. They have one EP as well as a full lenght album on Whichita Recordings ("In Our Space Hero Suits") and next March will be the release of their second, still untitled. For this occasion, by a simple glimpse of new single "Fuckarias", they are slowly walking away from their sweet Twee tunes, replacing them with a harder, richer feeling, still maintaning loyal to rock details.

It's a coming-of-age period for these swedish birds, and it might be just the beginning.
