[Audio] Röyksopp’s ‘Daddy’s Groove’

 

royksopp

New material from Norwegian legends Röyksopp is coming in drips and drops these days. After the release of last December’s Running To The Sea, we were pretty convinced of an incoming summer album and possible festival dates. It’s still a possibly, but that kind of hype momentum hasn’t started just yet. There is, however, another drip, another new tune.

Daddy’s Groove, is the intro track to the latest edition of the British Late Night Tales mix compilation series that sees Röyksopp taking up the reins for nineteen tracks of ecclectic weirdness. The track mixes Röyksopp’s tundra electronics with a lazy Disco groove. Bringing the tempo right down is a lot of the time where Röyksopp shine, and they do so here with an array of lush pads and toytown leads. The hazy, drifting vocoded vocals are just the icing on the cake.

[Audio] Röyksopp’s new single

Röyksopp

Recently débuted on Norwegian Music TV show Lydverket, this is the long, long, long awaited new single from Röyksopp. Röyksopp are massive favourites of ours, and in the current climate, wintery cold but sunny as hell, their music just seems to fit. It’s been three years since the amazing junior, and two since it’s more experimental companion Senior, and Running To The Sea, featuring the vocals of Susanne Sundfør is a epic return to the world of Pop.

This track just reminds us how incredible Röyksopp are. Sweeping and dramatic, loaded with emotive piano and rousing drums, it’s a track that you can’t help but feel something for. Like the best Röyksopp tunes it’s kinda’ understated and effortlessly sounds majestic without trying to hard. Sundfør’s powerful vocals are a perfect match for Running To The Sea. There’s not much else to say. Amazing.
