The Serenades are Swedish which automatically means they know more about how to write amazing pop songs than your average human. They are also a duo who feature the lead singer from another O!IW favourite Shout Out Louds. They have their first EP out at the end of the month and I reckon they’re just lovely.
You can download a free track right now on their website http://www.theserenades.com/
Citizens are a new band that feature members of Official Secrets Act who previously played O!IW a couple of years back. Now signed to Kitsune, ‘True Romance’ below is a super catchy bit of electro pop. Excellent retro video too! Free track on the website.
Chairlift have also recently returned with this pretty tasty track ‘Sidewalk Safari’. Caroline Polachek’s voice sounding more dynamic, bright and poppy than ever. We like. A lot.
