Indie-pop outfit Theo Berndt just announced the release of a single ‘Guess You Never Thought Of It That Way’, which they describe as being a continuation of the story they started spinning with their last single ‘Atomic’ released at the back end of last year.
The tracks were mixed by Andreas Söderlund (Niccokick, Hello Saferide) and recorded in their hometown Gothenburg by Anders Lagerfors. Their new sound is clearer, more confident; allowing them to take their trademark blisteringly fast and frolicking indie-pop melodies, which made them so popular in Japan and on Swedish local radio, and overlaid this with stronger, meaningful lyrics that encourage a transformation of the human psyche.
Although there is something of Vampire Weekend to their sound, lead singer, Emil Lundin’s vocals are distinctive and unique with a hint of the 80’s new romantics though upbeat and very, very fresh. This is 21st century indie pop at its very best.
