Today’s Hear This! track is You Want the Sun by Niki & The Dove from their new album Everybody’s Heart Is Broken Now.
The Swedish electronic-indie band comprising Malin Dahlström on vocals, Gustaf Karlöf on keyboards and Magnus Böqvist on drums, came fifth in the BBC’s Sound of 2012 Poll. Their debut album Instinct was very well received.
Four years later, the Scandinavians have released their new album, Everybody’s Heart is Broken Now awash with 80s sounds, disco and more than a little hint of the late, great Prince. Indeed, the opening track So Much It Hurts, mentions Thieves in the Temple twice.
For me, You Want The Sun is one of the album’s highlights, oozing summery sounds – think a laid back day on the beach.
