Rongedal - Because Of You

"I only do the things I do because of you"

Rongedal recently released their second album Absolutely Nowhere (I could make a really mean joke here, but won't) and, while I'm not on board with the entire thing, they've pushed themselves into more of an electronic 80's vibe on a few tracks and I'm all for that. Because Of You opens the album and is easily the standout. These guys can get a little too goofy sounding at times for my tastes, but when they scale it back they're fantastic pop songwriters. Because Of You is built around a dramatic, catchy synth riff that could have easily opened an Ark or Melody Club hit. I knew I was gonna love it before the vocals even came in. As with most of their songs, the lyrics aren't particularly memorable, but the melody is. I could see these two developing quite the lucrative songwriting business. They've got hooks and choruses in their blood. Plus a shiny disco ball attached to their heads, apparently.

Interested to hear your thoughts. I was a bit underwhelmed by most of the album, personally, but there are some great tracks in there.
