January has been a pretty stunning month for new Scandi music, so here’s our roundup of the best of the month. The Soundcloud list is pretty comprehensive, but criminally Zhala’s brilliant Aerobic Lambada is absent from YouTube.
Danish duo Rangleklods are back, and Lost U is amazing. Its propulsive tribal drums are matched with house piano and yearning vocals from Pernille and is impossible to listen to without having a bit of a dance. They’ve recently signed to Danish label Tambourhinoceros and will be releasing a follow up to excellent debut album Beekeeper shortly, with a European tour due to be announced. This is a slight change of sound for them but we’re suddenly excited for this as yet untitled album.
