[Audio] Lo-Fi-Fnk’s ‘U Don’t Feel The Same’

 

Lo-Fi-Fnk

Swedish SynthPoppers Lo-Fi-Fnk have dropped another surprise new single. We weren’t even sure they were still active, but they recently announced their forthcoming new album, titled, Can You Feel It?, and here is the second single following November’s title track release. This one’s called U Don’t Feel The Same, high octane stuff.

The duo turned trio serve us a monstrously sizes slice of ScandiPop on this one. U Don’t Feel The Same is a sprawling ElectroPop that in it’s three and a half minutes length offers up breakbeats, Chillwave synths, cheeky little riffs, and introspective vocals all on one track. It’s a bit of a Frankenstein of electronic styles, but the pull it off with seemingly effortless ease. Loaded with Lo-Fi-Fnk’s unique brand of Swedish quirkiness, U Don’t Feel The Same is Indie-Electro excellence.

Lo-Fi-Fnk & Mitzi

Lo-Fi-Fnk

Crazy Swedish ElectroPoppers Lo-Fi-Fnk’s new single has been released for free, well, we say free, it actually costs a tweet or a ‘Like’. On one hand that is am amazingly low price to pay for an awesome release, on the other hand getting us to Tweet or ‘Like’ something is becoming a bit of a transparent PR ploy which doesn’t gain real fans, just up stats, which are meaningless. Also, how do we know if we ‘Like’ something before we have it? We know music has always been a numbers game, but the numbers used to have meaning, now it’s just how many people have clicked your ‘Like’ button and then completely forgotten about you. Weird. Anyhoo, luckily, we do like Lo-Fi-Fnk’s new single, it’s easily worth the price.

And it comes with this mix from Australians Mitzi, who bust out their very finest warm bouncy House to add to Lo-Fi-Fnk’s ElectroPop. The result is a confortable feeling track which is pretty anthemic and generally full of feel good vibes. There’s a nice bit of ‘90’s House piano in there, but it’s used a lot more suitably than most tracks around today, which gives it a fuller sound without being overpowering. It;s just good, classic, Pop House. And you can’t say fairer than that.

Lissi Dancefloor Disaster’s new EP

Lissi Dancefloor Disaster

The Swedish abstract ElectroPop duo of Josefin Lindh and Johan Tilli, otherwise known as Lissi Dancefloor Disaster (so named after Johan former cat) have just released a brand new EP, titled appropriately in LOLcat speak ‘As We Plz’.

The lead track is ‘Pop Musiiic’ a wailing electronic ode to the 3m30s Pop song and it’s promised ability to lift you from hopelessness. This is ElectroPop art it’s rawest. Raucous drums and screeching synths, a combination you’d expect to create a accompany, but somehow it all works together in a beautiful way. SynthPop with a Rock ‘N’ Roll swing, ‘Pop Musiiic’ is fun, Poppy and slightly chaotic and that’s what makes it great. One of the highlights of the EP, for me, is the track ‘Glowing Hearts’, which musically is more traditional SynthPop with an 8-bit twist but juxtaposes that with some pretty dark lyrical subject matters. Fellow Scandinavians Lo-Fi-Fnk contribute a reMix to the package, turning ‘Pop Musiiic’ into a quirky, left-field vocal House track.

Lo Fi Fnk – Boom (Moonlight Matters Remix)

lofifnk

Coming straight off of Lo-Fi-Fnk’s reMix package for their new single, ‘Boom’, here’s the slick Disco of Moonlight Matters’ version.

Sitting alongside reMixes from Yelle DJs (tEPr & GrandMarnier) and Weekend Wolves, Moonlight Matters works his Disco magic. Taking the Swedish ElectroPop outsiders and easing their tune into a  Funk fuelled dense Disco tune is no mean feat, but the Belgian producer pulls it off effortlessly making their abstract vocal style seem perfectly at home amongst the slap bass driven raw Disco sounds.

‘Boom’ is released 27th June, their new album ‘Last Summer’ is out on on August 17th

Lo-Fi-Fnk reMixes Foster The People

fosterthepoeple

Foster The People’s summer anthem ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ had been giving a quirky ElectroPop treatment by Sweden’s super duo Lo-Fi-Fnk.

Dropping some breaks and some looping piano gives the track a cool 90’s Rave vibe underneath the big clubby ElectroPop. For all the chaotic meeting of styles here the end product is pretty slick and laidback giving Foster The People a Scandinavian summer sheen.

Lo-Fi-Fnk’s new single

Stockholm Indie-ElectroPop duo Lo-Fi-Fnk seem to have vast periods of being really quite and then unexpectedly dropping something pretty awesome.

‘Boom’ is their new single, taken from the forthcoming ‘Last Summer’ album,  and it’s a catchy, synth workout that for a track from an album called ‘Last Summer’ is amazingly summery. Go figure!

Ever since Lo-Fi-Fnk dropped a teaser of what to expect from their return we’ve been waiting excitedly for news of a forthcoming release.

What we do know is the teaser, ‘Marchin’ In’, will be the lead single and the Swedish ElectroPoppers have got Astronomer and Silver Columns on reMix duties.

The Silver Columns reMix fattens up the original with some deep analog synth bass and subtle house piano and creates a laidback Electro-House vibe with the track.
