I think I’m falling in love with Sweden even more. Lemme see, the country exports indie acts with lasting talent like Robyn, The Hives, Lykke Li, The Cardigans, The Sounds… the list goes on. Now add Teddybears Stockholm to that. Save for the menagerie of genre’s they mix like pop, rock, hip-hop, electronica, reggae, punk to name a few. These guys created their music around the year I was born and they sure made some great music.
The first time I’ve heard of these guys was in their Cobrastyle video. I’m totally down with the rhythm and the dig digi bombi-ness of it all, but those bear heads creep me. I mean, seriously. I have a thing against clowns as well, so this isn’t anything unusual. If you need to be reminded of that wild video, I posted it below.
Teddybears Stockholm’s Yours To Keep is the bees’ knees. There, I said it. I don’t want to force the track on you, but don’t prejudge the bear heads. Though it does add personality, nothing beats the good vocals from Paola and the right groove set by the trio.
