New Music 2011 - Part 8 - Daydreams and Nightmares - Those Dancing Days

I mentioned yesterday that Swedish five-piece Those Dancing Days are back with their sophomore album and that it is in a different style to 2008 début 'In Our Space Hero Suits'.  Here it is:

Daydreams and Nightmares
UK release: 28 February 2011 [Wichita Recordings]

1. Reaching Forward
2. I'll Be Yours
3. Dream About Me
4. Help Me Close My Eyes
5. Can't Find Entrance
6. Fuckarias
7. Forest Of Love
8. When We Fade Away
9. Keep Me In Your Pocket
10. I Know Where You Live
11. One Day Forever

It has rather less of the pop-and-northern-soul 'girl group' inflection, if not exactly influence, of the first album and correspondingly, but again not heavy-handedly so, more of a sinister riot-grrrl electric synth-sound.  The contrast is more than interesting; a case of exploring rather than abandonment.
Those Dancing Days are far from over but the rhythm has changed.  You can also legally stream another track from this album - 'I'll Be Yours'.
