Urban Cone - Kings and Queens
Sweden specializes in a certain type of music--a hybrid of electronica, indie and dance with a hint of that Scandinavian accent. Bands like The Tough Alliance or Lo-Fi-Funk come to mind immediately when I think about this. I think I can now add the strangely named Urban Cone to that list as well. I know very little about the band, but the moment I heard this track, with its persistent, bright synth and Sound-Of-Arrows-esque vocals, I knew that I was listening to something both familiar and special in its own right. I love the atmospheric production and the anthemic, yet restrained, hook.
