Words: Saam Das
We love a bit of Scandinavian pop, although Swedish couple The Forest & The Trees are less of the typical electro-pop that has emerged from the area of late, and instead purveyors of more of a folky indie-pop sound. Although there is a cheeky bit of electronica on 'You're In My Skin', which you can hear below.
'You're In My Skin' is the opening track from the duo's new album, 'Missions' - and a rather lovely start too, with Linnea Edin's ethereal vocals making a particularly strong impression. The track takes a distinct turn in its second half, more pulsating than its earlier wistfulness. Perhaps a sign of things to come on the album.
'Missions' is out now, through Best Fit Recordings. Find more info at forestandthetrees.se.
