Robyn & Kleerup: 'With Every Heartbeat'

By
Released on Monday, Aug 6 2007

Swedish pop-dance sensation Robyn's comeback single has got people all a-flutter, with Radio 1 going playlist-crazy for this slow-burning, ambient track. 'With Every Heartbeat' is reminiscent of 90s dance tracks by the likes of Robert Miles. The sort of songs that used to clog up Now That's What I Call Music albums and get everyone at your school disco making their moves for a smooch during the slow dance. While this tune is no body-shaking dance floor filler, it will no doubt be mimed in mirrors by teenage girls with hairbrushes for the rest of the year.

Robyn's soothing vocals are reminiscent of her fellow country-woman Nina Pearson from The Cardigans, squeezing out every ounce of sassy sexiness from the husky Swedish accent . The laid back, coffee-table friendly styling of the track calls to mind Moon Safari era Air, particularly their forgotten classic 'Kelly Watch The Stars'. While the lyrics may be devoid of any emotional clout, they tumble along pleasantly enough while the bleeps and glitches provided by Kleerup nurture your ears. Enjoy this pop gem while you can, because in a couple of weeks' time you'll be sick to the back teeth of it.
