Maja Francis – Last Days of Dancing

majafrancis

This song seems to have been hyped for at least a month now, despite it being the debut single from a newcomer. Maybe partly because it’s been co-written by Veronica Maggio, an absolute favourite of multitudes of Swedes. But does it live up to the hype? Actually, it does. It’ll be instantly familiar to fans of Veronica, but also Florence & the Machine, Marina & the Diamonds and Foxes (feels like she’s missing an “& the”). There’s even a hefty dose of Kate Bush in the vocals. It’s a sprightly pop number about what could possibly be a dance apocalypse, maybe brought on by falling for the wrong guy, complete with a vibrant video that provides a shot of summer joy in the darkness of the fifth month of winter. Based on what we’ve seen so far, there could be many more days of dancing yet for Maja.
