EPIC, from the very first note. The duo behind HandS has created a sound that rivals some of the best synth riffs of all time, that is subtlety reminiscent of New Order‘s iconic ‘Blue Monday’ and ABBA‘s ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ without being trifled regurgitation. Infectious and gorgeous the track never feels cluttered, but is a clean, crisp, perfectly packaged pop epic. Hkon and Sofie’s voices perfectly balance and compliment each other, neither over power or steal from the other.
I could continue on, but this truly is an instance where the music speaks for itself. Scandinavian pop stils reigns supreme.
