Last Days of Dancing
Sweden just keep the hits coming with a perfect, bittersweet, synth-y anthem about growing up from newcomer Maja Francis, freshly signed to legendary Stockholm label Sweden Music. “Last Days of Dancing” delivers irresistible punch with a sweeping, ’80s vibe courtesy of dreamy synths and a heavy distorted guitar line, lifted up by Francis’s sugary vocals. The track is fun but a little sad, bouncy but serious. And if you needed more convincing that Maja Francis is one to watch, she’ll be touring Scandinavia this month with Tove Lo and Seinabo Sey. Whether you are riding the Scandi-pop train hard or just looking for a surprisingly thoughtful piece of well-crafted fantasy pop for your June playlist, “Last Days of Dancing” is definitely one to add.
