Waves Under Water - Red Star
Electro Swedish Dark Electro artist Waves Under Water is back with a digital only single called 'Red Star'. I was actually pretty exited, since I really enjoyed their 2009 debut album 'Serpents and the Tree'. This will also be a good indication of how their second album will be like, released later this year.

'Red Star' is a real old school single with two tracks, A-side or B-side as it was called in the good old days. The first track is of course "Red Star" and the second one is the Swedish titled "Danslokal", the song was actually ready before the release of 'Serpents and the Tree', but somehow it did not fit. Does it all fit in here?

At first I was a bit sceptic to the effects that where put on Angelica's voice in "Red Star", but it did not take to much convincing to make me realize that it actually sound really great. The vocals complement the music and the music complements the vocals, it's like a hippie wet dream of caress. As far as the music goes, it's great. The melodies, the lyrics and the overall sound are all very well produced.

The same goes for "Danslokal". Part from the great melody and the production, the lyrics is a delight and it's really fun to hear something interesting in Swedish. Generally I have some real problems with Swedish lyrics, since they tend to sound a bit cheeky, but this actually works and it works really great. It makes me focus on what Angelica is actually singing and trying to hear and analyze each word. "Danslokal" is the favourite track on this single and one of my absolute favourites from Waves Under Water.

If the second will be anything like this single, I think we all should be praying for it to come soon.
