Robyn

This Swedish blonde bombshell explodes with a slightly techno sound, thanks to her new sidekick, Klas Åhlund. Her sweet pop voice carries smoothly throughout all of the tracks, picking up on some R&B lilts, taking you back to the days of her 1997 smash hit "Show Me Love".

"Konichiwa Bitches" is Robyn’s tribute to herself in celebration of her own label, Konichiwa Records. It’s a vicious track that lives up to the type of pop music she wants to make: "I wanted it to be simple, I wanted it to be sparse, and I wanted it to be hard."*

Other biggies include "Who’s That Girl" and "Handle Me". The chest-clutcher "Be Mine!" is clean and stark. The heartbreak is so clear it’ll have you remembering your first unrequited love at the school dance. Elsewhere tracks like "Eclipse" and "Anything You Like" slow things down so that her ethereal voice can shine through.

It’s honest music with a fresh pop sound. If you loved her back then, you’ll love her now. And even if you didn’t know who she is, this album is perfect for any pop junkie.

If you don’t know who Robyn is, you could be forgiven. But the opening track of her latest self-titled album, "Curriculum Vitae", tells you all you need to know about her, in a way that you will never forget.
