Normally, I wouldn’t dedicate an entire post to one song (that’s what the Tumblr page is for), but I’ve been nothing short of obsessed with ‘Fuckarias’—the new song and video from Those Dancing Days, released this morning—all day.
For a long time, I was on the fence about Those Dancing Days. Was my love for them grounded in the music they make, or was it simply the manifestation of an immense crush on Linnea Jönsson? But hearing ‘Fuckarias’ for the first time this morning has left me with no doubt whatsoever. It is definitely the music.
Catchy as ever but more driving than anything from In Our Space Hero Suits, if this is the direction the girls are headed, then their future is exceedingly bright. And, as her performance on ‘Fuckarias’ will once again attest, Cissi Efraimsson is easily one of the most solid (and under-appreciated) drummers in pop music. Seriously. Watch the video.
As if I needed another reason to be depressed about missing Bowlie 2…
Those Dancing Days are set to release their sophomore album, Daydreams and Nightmares, on the first of March. For now, download ‘Fuckarias’ for free.
God, I love these ladies!
