Norway's Propeller Recordings are one of our fave labels from across the lands, having brought the likes of Team Me and Highasakite to the fore in recent times. They've pulled another stunner from the bag, with this galloping new track from Thea & The Wild, ahead of their forthcoming tour of their homeland.
We've missed Thea & The Wild - less in the sentimental sense in all honesty, and more in the "how on earth did we never hear about her?" fashion. Thea Raknes and company have admittedly been resting for quite some time now, albeit honing her songcraft to a high standard, if 'Dark Horse' is anything to go by. The ebullient melodies contrast the darker lyricism, and the result is Scandi-pop magic.
