I’m glad that we can always count on Sweden for the most delectable and elegant indie pop. Club 8 duo Karolina Komstedt and Johan Angergård are, believe it or not, getting set to release their eighth album, Above The City, having released their debut album back in 1996. As old as they might be, there’s no doubt that they’re still sounding as fresh and modern as ever.
“I’m Not Gonna Grow Old” is the second single from the album, and it is a delightful sentiment. It’s yet another catchy indie pop piece infused with disco strings, anthemic choruses, well timed “oh oh ohs,” and just enough dance sensibility. We’re all going to grow old, but here’s hoping that this track makes you feel that much younger today.
Above The City is out May 21, 2013 through Labrador Records.
