Detektivbyrån - Hemvägen 16A


This is exactly what I needed right now. The sun is blasting down with all its force, the temperatures are tropical, the sweat is flowing.

I can't listen to sweaty, heated summer songs right now. I can't dance through the night as the heat is draining all my energy.
All my Summer Songs (all the Girl Talk and Lily Allen and whatnot) are currently left on the shelves (or out of my Playlist).

This is my song for this heated summer.
Its from a new band out of Sweden called Detektivbyran. They haven't released anything yet, but the first demos I heard from their Website promise wonderful things to come.

"Hemvägen 16A" starts with a wonderful accordeon piece that very much reminds me of Yann Tiersen (that's a good thing, at least for me).
It builds and builds using great diverse instrumentation, like glockenspiel, a trumpet and a clarinet.

This song glides through the air, it flows, steadily builds, until at last you can't help but start moving, even if the air conditioner is losing its fight against the heat.

And another reminder:
Blogathon: This Saturday.

Yeah, really unique... Yann Tiersen kids?

Agreed! I'm just listening to Hemvägen 16A for the first time. I found it so compelling I had to look it up straight away. My first thought was "Hey, this reminds me of Yann Tiersen!". And then I found your blog on Google :P

Fun! :)
