Elenette : Autenticitet EP + Masculinitet EP (Cosy Recordings)
Cosy Recordings are continuing to extend their unfailing musical range skills with the release of these 2 successive EP's by Stockholm-based quatuor Elenette. And this time the teleportation brings us more than 20 years back in the golden age of Synthpop, between Japan's arty sophistication and A-ha's immediate pop (the song Kärlekskomplexet sounds like a superb "Take on me"variation).
In addition to this, all-present saxophone backings are conveying a very special emotion (think a happy Tuxedomoon or a light-hearted Theatre of Hate) and the use of Swedish language on top makes all the thing sound fucking exotic ! Elenette, kings of sparkling chansonette !!
