Red Sleeping Beauty - Stockholm
In our opinion April is turning out to be a good music month, and one only need to consider Stockholm to know that we are correct. No, not the city, although a friend that visited last year raved about its charms. We are referring to the new album by Sweden's Red Sleeping Beauty. Continuing their return from a long hiatus, the band proves themselves synth pop creators of the highest level, perfectly balancing pop euphoria, swirling moodiness, and club hits. For some of us, the right kind of music floods the brain with pleasure, perhaps the best natural drug on can achieve standing up. This is an album that delivers that feeling in large, glorious doses.
Red Sleeping Beauty are Niklas Angergård, Kristina Borg, and Mikael Matsson. Stockholm is out now in digital and CD formats via Matinee Recordings.
