every month i am buying almost all music magazines that are coming out here in germany and spend a fair amount of time in bed reading them, ending up checking out tons of random music and usually being disappointed by almost everything because these guys obviously just seem to live in another world. this time it was a bit different though, as i read about the sound of arrows and that lead me to one of the catchiest pop style songs i came across in ages: 'danger!'.
their myspace page says they are from 'pop heaven' and judging by their sound, the go! team must be up there with them too, complete with a whole arsenal of flutes, bells, vintage breaks records, distortion pedals and every other piece of gear you can imagine. here's your ticket:
the sound of arrows - danger!
and if that wasn't good enough already, a person named mr. pedro got busy on a remix of 'danger!' that sounds like having pet shop boys on the percussions while anoraak and fred falke are hammering on the vintage synthesizers. so so good:
the sound of arrows - danger! (mr. pedro remix)
full disclosure: actually the sound of arrows are from sweden and you can buy their ep with 9 tracks of greatness straight from their label labrador, so go for it already!
(and oh, on a sidenote: after i was surprised to read about a good band in a german magazine, i noticed that the headline was 'good music from the blogs'. yeah, where else would they have found it?)
