oh sweden, land of everything that magically goes pop, how i’ve neglected you, after all you’ve done for me, convincing me that loving good ol’ catchy pop music is nothing to be ashamed of, let alone dance along to. if not for you, i’d never have gotten to listen to doctors & dealers, which really is the music of a little girl called sparrow who roams the wilderness of your land. and if not her wonderful album lost friends and newfound habits, i would have never heard the delightfully groovy “on the dancefloor”, a song that sounds almost too bold, and too outspoken for a swedish pop song. i don’t know very much about sparrow except for the fact that she also plays in another stockholm band called southside stalkers, but maybe that just adds to the smoky mystique of this opening track that’s all set for the dancefloor. – dan.
lost friends and newfound habits was released earlier this year on bluesong records. get it!
