RÖYK­SOPP & ROBYN Do It Again Dog Tri­umph/Wall of Sound ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC - JIM CAR­ROLL

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 slow­burn­ing 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 Down­load: Mon­u­ment, Do It Again, Ev­ery Lit­tle Thing
