The Honeydrips - Here Comes The Future

Out on Sincerely Yours (a label owned by none other than my current-favourite subversive-pop duo The Tough Alliance), "Here Comes The Future" is the first record from Gothemburg singer/songwriter Mikael Carlsson and it's another one of those luminous pop moments the Swedes seem so found of. Sometimes including synths and other electronic elements, other times using only acoustic instruments, influences range somewhere between Saint Etienne, Jesus & Mary Chain and New Order, using disparate vintage elements that subtly produce something truly unique. And out of nowhere, we have a beautiful collection of gentle and intricate pop songs in our hands, songs that dream about a love that never materializes, full of emotional highs and downs, reverb voices and praising the feeling of being lonely only because. Perfect to be heard on sunny winter days (9/10)
