I won’t lie to you anymore – I’m a typical ugly American; I speak only one language (and badly at that), I like to be first, I’m competitive and cynical. That leads me to Tupelo Honey. I’m pretty sure I’m the first to write about Swedish twins Linn and Joel Eden.
In any endeavor it helps to have something to catch the public’s attention. In the entertainment world being extremely young can help, having some sordid history doesn’t hurt, or dating a famous movie star are three quick ways to make it to the top. Another way is to be twins. The band Tupelo Honey’s fits that particular bill. They’re a boy and a girl, they’re twins and they make spankly, clean pop. “Oh What A Day” is destined to be a hit, if only enough people could hear it and”Boy You’re Alright” is the perfect Belle and Sebastian inspired b-side. I guarantee this will see wider release in Sweden some day very soon.
