I’ve decided to start a non-regimented mini-segment called Old News. Simply because I often find a lot of really cool music that I want to yarn about but it sometimes turns out the song or artist has been out for quite a while. I never committed to completely “new” music. At least I hope I didn’t, because I don’t really keep promises too well with my blogging.
With that said, the first installment is a presentation of another lovely Swedish artist going by the name of Theo Berndt. He’s relatively unheard of (600 facebook fans) and unlike some of the other artists I’ve highlighted lately, Theo Berndt with his 2012 album, F.E.A.R.S is a beautifully happy indie-pop collection that jumps about spontaneously from song to song, never quite sure where it belongs but always pleasing. The latest track to be released, entitled Artwork, is definitely rougher than a lot of other stuff but seriously awesome.
Similar to American smiley-pop extraordinaire, Kyle Andrews, Berndt’s brand of indie ranges from jumping-on-the-bed exciting with songs like the aforementioned Artwork, to the more inspirational digi-ballad, Blueberry Clouds. He deserves a lot more attention than he’s currently getting so eat up.
