TVÅ | Always Be
Stockholm-based TVÅ are streaming two pretty bubblegum electro-pop songs, “Keep Me a Secret” and the more upbeat and catchy “Always Be”. Sometimes it’s good not to have any sharp edges. “Always Be” is pretty straight forward, danceable, well-rounded pop music. But it’s the exactness of the track that sets it apart from the rest, with its acute club beat, golden floating piano chords, glimmering double-tracked lead vocals (with a slight reverb) and the no-nonsense quality of the lyrics about a steadfast love in the face of hardship: “Baby, if you want me in your life / I will always be / If you want me in your arms / I will always be.” Their sound is like a lighter, breathier Everything But the Girl. These two tracks are out via CSCN, Cascine’s singles label. TVÅ is the duo of Marcus Andersson Lara Andersson. Follow them at facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
