Lo-Fi-Fnk - Boylife

Although originally released in 2006, only recently I've discovered Lo-Fi-FNK, a duo coming from Sweden consisting of Leo Drougge and August Hellsing. "Boylife" is their first album and is another irresistible take into the electro-synth-pop universe, this time seen from the eyes of two scandinavian indie-kids. Meaning that we have infectious upbeat anthems, retro 1980's synthesizers and keyboards, addictive melodies and a generally shameless pop attitude, but also a candid and enthusiastic approach that seems genuinely naïve (and all the better for it). With songs about glistening parties or growing up that actually sound clever and a natural and youthful energy, "Boylife" could very well be considered the positive side of last year's darker (and brilliant) "Silent Shout" by The Knife. (9/10)
