And just who ARE The Magnettes? Rebecka Digervall and Sanna Kalla from Pajala in Sweden. This is their excellently titled (and excellently sounding) new single ‘Sore Feet and Heartbeats’.
What do they say? “Pop songs about romance and rebounds, clarity and intoxication, the bitter-sweet bliss and the hollowness of heartaches”.
What does Scandipop say? ‘Sore Feet and Heartbeats’ is a super fun and delightfully catchy slice of camp and kitsch electropop. Take Girls Aloud, take Icona Pop, and deface them with a layer of spray paint – and you’ve got ‘Sore Feet and Heartbeats’.
Best bit? “with a oooOOOooh, and a aaaAAAaah”, definitely!
More from them? This is their first UK single. But they released their very first single, ‘Paper Cut’, way back in 2012 – and have just recorded a 2015 version of it.
