The two chaps credited with helping Eric Saade pull off a successful synthpop reinvention this year, have themselves returned with a brand new single. Swedish duo State of Sound (that’s Viktor Norén and Joakim Andrén to their nearest and dearest) release ‘Wake Up Where You Are’. And as an added bonus, it comes complete with an equally magnificent b-side tagged on to the end of it – ‘Summer Breeze’. The former is a tropical tinged slice of dreamy electro to blissfully chill out to, while the latter is an instrumental piano house banger with which to do the complete opposite. Today the boys have released a video for the double a-side’s shining star – ‘Wake Up Where You Are’. Watch;
You can find ‘Wake Up Where You Are’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
