Det Vackra Livet

What? A new band from Labrador Records that I wasn’t aware of? Well, Sweden’s purveyors of pop music is about to release something that has never made the Swedish language more beautiful.

Unaware of who or what the band was all about, I quickly listened to the single “Viljan” by Det Vackra Livet. A few seconds after the introduction of chilling eighties wave percussion, the vocals come in. My ears lifted and realized that it was Philip Ekström from The Mary Onettes. Further research also revealed that Henrik Ekström is also involved. The single is not too far removed from what the The Mary Onettes were doing. If The Mary Onettes decided to sing in Swedish the single “Viljan” is what they would sound like. Even with the different language in play, the harmonies are molded into a drooling roll of heart felt emotions. The debut single “Viljan” will be released February 2nd, 2011.
