NEIKED are straight up one of the best acts in indie-pop right now. It should be no surprise that they’re Swedish born and bred as that country seems to have an inherent understanding of how to make the catchiest music on Earth. I’m not sure if it’s genetic or if there’s something in the water, but every songwriter and pop star I’ve been obsessed with over the past couple decades has some sort of connection to the region. All that being said, NEIKED’s newest is pure ear candy that hits all the right mental pleasure centers with a snappy, carefree groove and effortlessly next level vocals from Husky that makes this feel like a pop smash. As soon as the song came across my inbox it was love at first sight and I couldn’t stop hitting replay – what better sign of an excellent release than that?
My personal anecdote today isn’t related to the music as much as it is the song’s general joyous vibe. I’m at the most centered phase of my life as I’m grounded by intellectual thought and spiritual understanding and people all around me that not only have their feet entrenched in those principles, but in the finer things of life like the pursuit of pure unadulterated happiness. Every moment might not be pure ecstasy but it’s beautiful stability like the sun shining over still waters. This lens through which I’m viewing the world is the healthiest lifestyle I’ve ever lived and this is just the start.
