Staygold - Backseat


"Get a job done in the parking lot"

I'm not the first to write about this track, but it's worthy of another mention because it's soon going to be ubiquitous (at least if you live in Sweden - or imaginarily live in Sweden, like me). Staygold are an electro production duo utilizing guest vocalists and performers for their songs. This single features the ever-reliable Salem Al Fakir (under a Prince-like alias Damien Adore) on lead vocals, as well as Spank Rock and Lady Tigra. Come to think of it, the whole thing sounds like a great, long-lost Prince track. From the cheeky lyrics to the funky falsetto, it's more of a pastiche than an original track. But it's fantastic, and ridiculously catchy. The chorus alone has been in my head for the past week, refusing to budge. Beneath all the attitude it's a flawless pop song, simple as that. They need to get Salem on every track for the album.

I hadn't heard much about Salem before, but I am getting quite excited about him now I think. Plus this post has the genius line "imaginarily live in Sweden, like me"!! Amazing!

Ah, me too! they were all very pretty (:
They said on the raido that it was Salem who came up with the sound for the song. I could never have guessed. Doesn't really sound like anything he's done before, no?

This is a "remix" of an old unreleased Salemsong, new bass and beats plus added vocalists - that's it!
