Sa sa sa-weet Swedish songwriting on this gorgeous NYC morning! Little Majorette are a name I'd heard floating around over the past year or so, but had never taken the time to fully ear up on. And sha sha sha shame on me for claiming ignorance, because quirky arrangements like the ones we're about to hear should not go unnoticed. Let's drum up some love!
Zoe Durrant, Petter Winnberg and Nils Tornqvist make up the trio, and each are already well admired within their respective music scenes. Zoe has recorded with Sneaker Pimps. Petter and Nils work side by side in the touring ensemble for Miike Snow, for whom Little Majorette was the opening act on their Swedish tour. Other side projects include Winnberg producing Fibes Oh Fibes and Tornqvist drumming for Lykke Li. Just. Yes. AWESOME.
LM's debut single, Bite the Bullet, was a huge hit in Sweden over the summer. You can watch the video for that track here. Or you can grab follow up track, London, which is found on the single EP as well. We've got the Dinamarca Remix of the song to hit you with too.
The original is a short and slick slice of fun. When the arrangement switches up at the :22 second mark, hold on to your hats. So much radness!
