Niki & The Dove - 'DJ, Ease My Mind'

Not so much stratospheric as it is exospheric

So great is Niki And The Dove’s belief in the redeeming power of a belting pop chorus, they seem to consider verses a bit beneath them. For the first minute or so, this track is all blah-blah-blah and then suddenly it’s THWACK; with a tune that’s not so much stratospheric as it is exospheric (check Wikipedia, yo) and ought legally to be sung by a cast of millions. Just Malin Dahlström will do for now, though.
