Club 8 - The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming

Sweden yet again! Coming from Stockholm, Club 8 consist of Johan Angergård on instruments and Karolina Komstedt on vocals and they practice a lo-fi and ethereal pop sound with a candid female voice singing (whispering?) everyday thoughts. Apart from a few sparse electronic appointments, the atmosphere is mostly acoustic, with a serene and limpid approach to melody. The end result is as simple and tender as it could get, almost to the point of being naïve. But it's also so warm and conforting that it really would be unfair to ask for more. (7/10)
