I’ve been inundated with requests from far and wide to write about Cloetta Paris and Sally Shapiro but I just figure if you’ve found me on the web than you’ve probably already heard of these artists on the larger, more prominent blogs like Stereogum, Fluxblog, Pitchfork, GvB et al. So my lot in life is to bring you the next such group that no one has found/written about/heard.
Today that’s an unsigned band that fits right alongside the two bands mentioned above both in style (electro pop) and quality (great!). These songs are Swedesplease exclusives that you won’t hear anywhere else. In fact if you work at a label this is your chance to sign your very own Swedish electro pop duo.
Tikkle Me is the name that these two women from Eskilstuna have chosen for their group. I haven’t heard the new Siouxie Sioux solo record but I’m sure the song “Boys Vs. Girls ( A Case Study)” would probably be a better choice for a single than anything she’s concocted. Both songs (and the photo above) share a certain aesthetic; the common elements are the whimsical, almost other worldly references to nature, the incessant beats and the gorgeous vocal interplay of the duo of Frida Herchenröther & Karin Taberman.
