Swedish group Violet Days have today released new single ‘Suck At Love’. Well actually it’s released tomorrow, but they’ve put it online today – so here it is. It’s an unusual song. Not just in that it doesn’t sound like anything else out there at the moment. Or even just in its distorted switch between tempos to the extent that it sounds like a completely different song in parts. But also because for the first 30 seconds we were all “no thanks”, but then by the end we were completely in love with it. The final minute is exceptional. And the whole thing is bordering on brilliant. An odd but rewarding listen, that needs repeating as soon as its finished.
You can find ‘Suck At Love’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
