New Music: Sample some glossy electro-pop from The Magnettes

Posted November 3, 2015 in Music

Panorama Test


The Magnettes, comprised of Rebecka Digervall and Sanna Kalla, come from way up north at the Finnish border, from a little town called Pajala. But despite coming from the Arctic [insert terrible, clunky journalist cliché segway about how ‘there’s nothing cold about their music’ here]. The Magnettes specialise in hyperactive, high-octane pop songs, sheer melody and sparky attitude jammed down into three and a half minutes of bouncy, colourful tune. The latest example this is their brand new single, ‘Bones’.

‘Bones’ is an irrepressible song, a slick neon adventure with Digervall and Kalla’s twin vocal powering along over glossy, chirpy synths. With lines like “your body is a masterpiece, but a piece is not enough for me” and “I won’t stop until I break your bones off”, it’s not exactly subtle in its subject matter, but hey, that’s never hurt a pop song before. ‘Bones’ is out now, and you can catch the band live when they support Danish popstar Oh Land at Kägelbanan on Saturday, Nov 10.
