Kate’s Swedish Music Corner

Kate, much like myself, is a Swedophile. She asked me to feature some Swedish music on Musick, and who am I to refuse? Her initial suggestion of Roxette was a curious one, but after a small argument we decided on Musick favourites Those Dancing Days.

Signed to Wichita records, this all-female five piece from Stockholm made some very stylish waves last year with two pop-tastic singles in the shape of ‘Hitten’ and the self-referential ‘Those Dancing Days’. So far progress on their debut album has been interrupted by the Swedish Education system who demanded that they sit some exams before they jet off on the road to rock ‘n roll fame. It seems they’ve finished their studies now and are back with a new single, entitled ‘Run, Run’.

Ah, I love it. I shouldn’t, but I do. It’s the musical equivalent of Sunny D. The video is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, but I think they know it. There’s also the somewhat unnecessary bonus of being able to watch a ‘behind the scenes’ making of, which is only mildly worse then the video itself.
