Holiday For Strings

Thieves Like Us’ Pony has given us the heads up about his new project Holiday for Strings, with John from Peter Bjorn & John.

The Swedish six piece have just dropped their second record, a collection of reMixes from their album, ‘Favorite Flavor’. Driven by some awesome, Hooky influenced, bass playing the No-Disco/Indie-Electro tracks have a real New York Disco feel to them but while they are the kind of tracks guaranteed to get the party started there is an added layer of intelligence going on, both musically and lyrically.

The band have also just premiered the video for ‘Two Of You’, apparently there was fire department involvement, haha! check it here.

Both Holiday For Strings’ album and the reMix EP are out now.

Thieves Like Us’ new single


This week sees the release of Thieves Like Us’ latest offering, the ‘Forget Me Not’ single. This will be the second taste, after the ‘leaked’ track ‘Never Known Love’, of their forthcoming new album ‘Again And Again’

To get you in the mood for the new single try checking out these two remixes, including one by Gomma artiste Cecile who’s dancefloor beats betray the haunting nature of the reMix and the Second Date mix, which is my favourite so far, with a nice modern-retro feel to it. Full of arpeggios and 80’s synth chords without ruining the melancholic nature of the original.

New Thieves Like Us


Taking their name from the New Order track, Thieves Like Us had reasonable success on ‘07 with their (now classic) ‘Drugs In My Body’ on Kitsuné Music and with ‘Your Heart Feels’ in ‘08.

Now they are back for ‘10 with ‘Never Known Love’, the first taste of the forthcoming full length album ‘Again And Again’. ‘Never Know Love’ displays it’s mixed French Electro/New Order influenced but the raw synth bass, hushed vocals and gangly guitar stabs bring it down firmly on the side of New Wave.

‘Again And Again’ is out later this year.
