This is an uplifting/melancholic tune with a fast pace and very catchy melodies. “No Sweet Dreams” take us on a tour through illness (or maybe drug abuse). A pristine production and deeply personal lyrics make of this track a must hear.
What’s going on my friends! It’s your UFO sighter, MadZen, and today we will get ready for this brand-new release that is as groovy as it is serious. A thought-provoker brought to us by an amazing Swedish artist. This track captures the exciting elements of Power Pop as well as the thrilling melodies of Indie Rock. Let’s get to it!
Arn-Identified Flying Objects and Alien Friends… Well, that’s a long name! It’s the solo project of Swedish musician Arne Floryd, who also happens to play guitar and sings in the Swedish band REDMOON. He spent 2021 releasing a string of singles and a double album, produced by legendary David Myhr (from the Merrymakers). His music blends pop, folk and indie rock, but although many of the songs might be rooted in musical soil of the sixties and the seventies, there’s no nostalgia here.
“No Sweet Dreams” is his upcoming track. A beautifully crafted, melancholic tune with lyrics that are both personal and poetic. This track opens up with a crescendo-ing synth that quickly explodes into a rush of heavy drums, acoustic guitars, and a characteristic melodic whistle that presents itself throughout the track. Kind of its unique mark!
The track was originally inspired by worries about health issues among Arne’s dear ones, and it slowly evolved into a whole other story as the song started to unfold. What stands out more in the track are the banging drums played by the great Andreas Quinzy Dahlbäck. Accompanying the beat are also sharply strung guitar chords, a fat & groovy bass line and even a string choir! The chorus is perfectly well produced and the verses pull us in with a sturdy magnetic force.
There are a lot of textures and details inside this song, as well as a unique musical structure that keeps progressing and evolving with a professional style. Sound is crisp, melodies are catchy, and the beat invites the listener to dance away the melancholy. Without a doubt a pretty neat track, so
