Moonbabies

dream pop // electronic

Swedish duo Ola Frick and Carina Johansson have been making dreamy, sophisticated pop for the better part of a decade. Hearing their latest album, a mix of lush orchestral swells, twinkling piano, and endearing guitar riffs, is not unlike seeing a rainbow. Bright and sweeping, it’s the sort of music you’d put on the playlist while drinking strawberry lemonade under the summer sun. And yet the lyrics, too, are worth more than a passing glance: warm and pensive, they make a fine counterpoint to the sweet melodies and often cover darker, more daring ground. Perhaps that lemonade could do with a touch of liquor.

Good, nearly clean fun

    “Take Me To The Ballroom” is so very beautiful. It’s like a poppier “Tonight, Tonight”.

    Nice rec. :)

    This is exactly what i was looking for for the last month or so of summer. Thanks so much (have now bought both CDs)!

  6. Jimbalaya :

    Is it just me, or does their song Ratatouille sound remarkably similar to Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Blue Turning Gray?
