Lust For Youth, the Swedish/Danish synth-pop alliance of Hannes Norrvide and Malthe Fischer, has an impressive repertoire of cutting-edge albums. Their distinct musical blend is a compelling mix of dream-like, harmonic pop melodies with an undercurrent of dark, contemplative shadows. The duo’s latest offering through Sacred Bones, the single “Giorgia,” is a guitar-anchored anthem underpinned by a throb of synth bass that successfully conjures up the languid warmth of summer nights whilst simultaneously hinting at an unsettling sense of darkness and discomfort.
Indeed, the radiant glory of “Giorgia” seems to ripple and extend, impressively engraved on the broad canvas of 90s Britpop’s psychedelic pinnacle. Sung exclusively in Swedish, the track unveils a resplendent array of sounds reminiscent of the flamboyant quirkiness of Super Furry Animals, the daringly experimental Blur, and the enchantingly creative Lightning Seeds. The song majestically takes flight through auditory spaces, provoking an intoxicating, irresistible wave of euphoria.
With “Giorgia,” Lust For Youth boldly tugs at the heartstrings, unabashedly embracing the bittersweet melancholy of nostalgia. Listen below:
