I think there was a certain novelty to all-girl teenage Swedish act These Dancing Days which made me somewhat overlook their initial rise to prominence, culminating in their debut album, 2008's 'In Our Space Hero Suits'. They recently came back with a bang with a teaser track for their new album, 'Daydreams & Nightmares', and have unleashed another teaser this week.
In December, the irrepressibly punky 'Fuckarias' appeared. Maybe a return to form for some but for me, this was the bright neon sign announcing their arrival. Although I don't know why anyone would want to "fuck arias" as I am a fan of expressive melodies. Anyway, the track that's emerged in the last day or so is called 'I'll Be Yours', which they're happily giving to us all for free.
'I'll Be Yours' is a more of a breezy indie-pop offering but I don't mean that as a bad thing. Along with 'Fuckarias', it suggests that the second full-length record from These Dancing Days could well be a good 'un.
