I’m going to get my favorite part of this announcement out of the way first. I’m From Barcelona, who are not from Barcelona, have their own Etsy shop. I love these goods, I love the new take on merch, I feel as twee as a Flintstone vitamin.
OK: Now for the meat in this good news sandwich. The Swedish indie-pop crew has released its new album “Forever Today,” well, today, and in celebration have unleashed a very sunny music video to the set’s second single. “Always Spring” reminds you that it’s always
happy hour summer somewhere, and that it doesn’t take a good singer to be a great frontman. Emanuel Lundgren takes us by the hand on a countryside jaunt and bike ride.
The thing appears to be made from an iPhone video, while Lundgren’s mustache may be the worst (read: best) photo-bomber ever. It’s sweet.
“Forever Today” is the follow-up to 2008’s “Who Killed Harry Houdini?”.
