It’s always fun when Norwegian space-disco wizard Hans-Peter Lindstrøm emerges from his velvet-coated underground planetarium (which is where I imagine Lindstrøm lives) and gives us something that even vaguely resembles pop music. He’s now done that for Say Lou Lou, the Swedish/Australian festival-pop duo, teaming up with them on their new single “Games For Girls.” The combination is a powerful one. Lindstrøm’s production is typically earthshaking, but Say Lou Lou have given it a playful double-dutch melody, and it all just works together. The song will reportedly show up on Say Lou Lou’s debut album Lucid Dreaming, which is out next year, and you can hear it below.
The “Games For Girls” single is out 10/12 on Columbia, and Lucid Dreaming is out 2/2 of next year.
