Suburban Kids With Biblical Names
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, Nordic duo Johan Hedberg and Peter Gunnarson are very cool indeed. Seemingly out of nowhere, under the guise of Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, they’ve made a lush folk pop album that wouldn’t appear out of place in Sufjan Stevens’ personal CD collection. Electronica-tinged bluegrass cult hit-in-the-making ‘Loop Duplicate My Heart’ will have the most stubborn foot tapping; catchy, clever and coolly complex. Like a young primary school Beck skipping through The Shins’ back catalogue, this record harbours more romantic whimsy than those misty-eyed couples who choose to have hideous Disney-themed weddings. Bow down before the new Viking invasion.
