Eye Emma Jedi (say the name out loud, brilliant right?) are an Anglo-Norwegian indie pop band made up of “four white nerds and a black guy with an afro,” as described by themselves. Eye Emma Jedi currently resides in London after making the move from Norway, and “Sin” is their first official release in the UK. I’ll admit I’m a sucker for Scandinavian indie pop, but combining this with Brit-pop styling was an absolute success in my eyes.
“Sin” takes the best from both worlds and delivers us a classic slice of energetic pop. The opening guitar lines are typically bouncy and embodied with sunshine, but there is still a certain amount of precision held in its deliverance, something I would associate Foals with. It’s frenetic indie pop at its best, and you can’t help but love it.
The force is strong with this one.
