Why do we like this?
Like the champagne-based cocktail invented by Hemingway, DITA, which stands for Death In The Afternoon, is a tasty Swedish dream pop quartet that is all sorts of crazy when you take a sip. It's effervescent, new wave music that can't be really placed.

This DITA remix changes up an indie punk song by Swedish band Dial M for Murder. I'm loving all these old time-y references - Hemingway, Hitchcock. It's fitting that DITA's next full-length release is titled KINO, drawing a mixed inspiration from 80s movie soundtracks and French cinema from the 1930s and 40s.

The soon-to-be-released album sounds something like electronic or new wave. M83 here and there, sorta like Kavinsky - but that'd be a stretch. Electronic elements with analong synths, mellow vocals and drum machines. It's good. No wonder it's been a pretty eventful year for the band. So far, they've been on MTV and Swedish radio. I'm really digging this remix, which isn't on the album sadly.

You can take a listen to DITA on SoundCloud. Make sure to check their Facebook or their website for the upcoming album - it's definitely worth a listen. I'm particularly fond of the track "John Who." Dial M for Murder is also on MySpace.
