Death In The Afternoon
Out 28th August 2015 via Sommarhjärta
“Slurring guitar chords and a heavy bassline progress nicely onto groovy guitar picking, married to smooth high vocals from the new dreampop duo. Definitely one to watch out for”- GQ Magazine
“The brilliant combination of 80s groove, dreamy vocals and synthy backline makes you feel like you’ve jumped straight into a time machine.”- Fresh On The Net
So the summer is finally here and so is the latest single by the Swedish electro-pop act Death In The Afternoon. The song is called ’82, and it is produced remotely by the duo themselves. Christian and Linda’s hard work, talent and artistic individuality seem to be paying off by having already gained the support of GQ Magazine, JaJaJa Music, Nordic By Nature to name a few.
Airy, dreamy and filled with stunning vocal lines, the single ‘82 begins with a steady beat and lures the listener into its eerily stunning sound right away. Playing with the evergreen romanticism softly implied by bands like M83 or Young Galaxy, DITA are all about looking skyward and actually providing the sonic jetpacks essential to getting there.
The nostalgic feel of this mid-tempo summer soundtrack presents the widely respected Scandi winning formula of writing songs filled with skill, quality and creativity. Its tempered instrumental atmosphere is given a steady rise and a contrasting sense of melancholia by the distant lead vocals, leaving the listener hopelessly enchanted throughout and wanting more.
’82 will be released via Summer Heart’s label Sommarhjärta, and it will be available for sale and download everywhere from the 28th August.
