Kate Boy – Northern Lights
Sweden is synomous with great electro-pop acts- ever since the birth of The Knife, there’s been a pretty steady flow this unique, experimental genre. My most recent favourite being iamwhoiamami. But now this mysterious act, with an equally intriguing name, pop their four-headed monster of a track on the scene – 3 Swedes and 1 Australian – and have me hooked. Like a brightly coloured beach ball bounding down a dark alley way, Northern Lights, is a bouncy yet moody track. Littered with metallic, synthy stabs, and perfectly pitched vocals you can sing along to – Everything we touch turns to gold – Kate Boy are surely destined for a big 2013.
