Something You Should Listen To: Frida Hyvönen - Terribly Dark

This is one of the best singles of the year so far.

Frida Hyvönen is a Swedish indie lady. Until recently the only interesting thing about her music was that one of her songs contained the lyric "Once I felt your cock against my thigh". 

But it seems that she has seen the light. For 'Terribly Dark', the first single from her upcoming fifth album, 'To The Soul', she's gone disco. More specifically it's quite Italoish, in a 'classy' and restrained way. Think of a female, 'indie' and 'quirky' version of much of Will Young's last album and you probably have a pretty poor approximation of what 'Terribly Dark' sounds like. To be honest you should probably just listen to it for yourself. The choruses near the end where she sings over herself are really quite something. 

Amazing. Well done, Frida Hyvönen.
