The Sound of Arrows is a young Swedish sythpop duo that recently released their epic, sparkling debut, Voyage. Three singles preceded the LP, but this fourth single is the best introduction to their special brand of spacious, slightly melancholy pop anthems. (There is some elegant pining for a lost love in this particular track.) It will probably remind you of golden-era Pet Shop Boys. However, this is high-gloss modern pop, and several of the other tracks on the album feature production from none other than Richard X. All in all, a warm companion for the bracing winter days ahead.
