Per och Olof (Sweden) - ‘Händerna’ (single)
Swedish songwriter Per och Olof made an impression with his track ‘Ensam’ earlier this year, and now he’s back with another – this time the high energy 'Händerna'.
For those of you who don’t remember he’s been around for years playing in different punk and indie bands, but launched his solo project after taking some demos to Joakim Lindberg's (Wy, Arre Arre, Hey Elbow etc.) studio and re-cutting them into releasable indie pop songs.
The result has been a series of easy listening slightly fuzzy style guitar songs, and 'Händerna' rattles forward at pace, with a memorable if slightly repetitive guitar driven melody. The highlight is definitely the interplay between guitars, and it’s an enjoyable song.
It’s in Swedish and I’ll allow someone else the opportunity to interpret the lyrical content, because apparently when I make stuff up I get it wrong. 'Händerna' translates to 'the hands' according to google, so it’s possibly something to do with them.
'Händerna' has been released through Rama Lama Records, and you can find him on Facebook.
