If you were to take the melodic bounce of Vampire Weekend and the quirky art pop of Everything Everything, blend it all together in a fine melting pot of jaunty indie beats and exuberant pop fizz, then the latest single by Swedish band Theo Berndt would come out the other end. The song in question is ‘Guess You Never Thought Of It That Way’. An exercise in sparkling drums, impassioned vocals, buoyant synths and jagged guitar rhythms.
Nimble grooves dance around a growing sense of self-empowerment. ‘Guess You Never Thought Of It That Way’ is bold and brave, sonically and lyrically, and so so much fun.
‘Guess You Never Thought Of It That Way’ is out 8th July, via Birds Will Sing For You.
