Red Sleeping Beauty - Tonight EP
Prolific synth pop masters Red Sleeping Beauty are presenting us with a new record. Just a few months after releasing the wonderful Stockholm LP, the Swedish trio return with Tonight, a four-track EP that should further enhance their reputations in the top echelon of synth pop. Leading off is title track "Tonight", an upbeat song featuring dual vocals and memorable hooks. It also featured on the recent album, but it deserves this second and starring role. Following track "Someone Somewhere" adds a charming indie pop vibe to the band's repertoire, with Kristina's vocals bearing the perfect amount of sassy '60s girl group attitude. "Emma's House" is an enchanting cover of a tune by English band The Field Mice. Final song "Falling Out Of Love" fits perfectly in Red Sleeping Beauty's sweet spot creating songs that invite you to dance while you sigh. Listen for it in a club near you.
Red Sleeping Beauty are Niklas Angergard, Kristina Borg, and Mikael Matsson. Tonight EP is out July 12 in CD and digital formats via Matinee Recordings, but you can order it and obtain the digital version now.
