sweden, i love you.

August 7, 2009

I have been listening to alot of Swedish dance music this past week or so, and almost every band I’ve heard I have loved. My friend Chris told me about this band Zeigeist, and that they sound like The Knife, and I had to check them out. The first track I heard was Humanitarianism, and I thought it was alright. While checking out their youtube videos I saw that they had covered Kylie Minogue‘s Giving You Up. Being a huge Kylie fan myself, I listened to it, and here it is:

Zeigeist- Giving You Up

Isn’t it great!? Better than the original, in my opinion.

Another band I’ve come across is Miike Snow. They too, are Swedish. Their single is Animal, but when I downloaded the album, I found Sylvia to be their best track. Here it is:

Miike Snow- Sylvia

This other band I came across was The Sound of Arrows. Popjustice had SOA’s Into The Clouds track as their “Song of the Day” and I searched for them and came across this track. It kind of sounds like a dance-y pop version of a Disney song, and I love it.

Sound of Arrows- M.A.G.I.C.

That’s about it, I think. If I come across anymore great Swedish bands, I shall blog again. Until then, I’ll leave you with a performance by Zeigeist of Wrecked Metal, my favourite one by them.
