Ola Joyce - Window Shopping


"You should be a model or the mistress of a politician"

I've been wanting to share this song for so long now, but haven't been able to find a HQ version to stream. This still isn't 100% there, but it's pretty close. Regardless, Window Shopping needs to be heard. Ola Joyce is a new Swedish singer-songwriter with influences that range from Rufus Wainwright to Prince to (in this song) Duran Duran. This is his debut single and the funkiest thing I've heard from him so far. An album is on the horizon, but for now we'll have to do with an EP (which, frustratingly, isn't available to buy outside of Sweden). While Window Shopping is undoubtedly the standout of the EP, with it's breezy synth-assisted pop smarts, there's another song he's been performing recently (Old Fashioned Heartbreak) which sounds just as good (and more importantly for him, like a smash hit). Definitely an artist to keep an eye on. I have a feeling Sweden's about to fall in love with him.

As far as I know, I'm the first person to cover Ola in this corner of the blogosphere. This'll change soon, I bet.
