The only problem with Do It Again is that it ends with you wanting a lot more from this Nordic pairing. While Robyn Carlsson and Röyksopp’s Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland have shared studios before now, and this mini-album indicates that the Swedish electropop queenpin and the Norwegian electronic wideboys have plenty more to give. Both acts share a knack for fine-tuning primetime dancefloor melancholia. The opening track, Monument, is a keeper in this regard, a slow-burning 10 minute epic with sultry, eerie harmonies and a Robyn manifesto about doing it all with love. The title track and Every Little Thing are equally big and bold, full of flashing colour, strong dynamics and powerful, tender, heartfelt emotion. Sayit is a dirty dance-pop monster baiting you to get closer. This is one Scandanavian pop hook-up you’ll want to hear from again. doitaga.in
