On The Radio delivers the same sense of cheery pop innocence we're used
to from Swedish Octet the Concretes, another gentle love song full of happy
guitary sunshine that will bring an idiot grin to your face while the summer
lasts. By the time autumn clouds over (or even by the time the next song
comes on the radio) you'll have completely forgotten it, but never mind.
It's nice while it lasts, which is what pop should be all about.
But do you know what the best thing is about this latest single? No, not
the lovely, sugar-sweet vocals of Victoria Bergsman, nor the ethereal
psychedelic piano intro, reminiscent of the Monkees at their best.
It's not even that closing your eyes and imagining you're listening to them
live will bring back memories of guitarist Maria Eriksson handing out
balloons to the audience.
It's the fact that the sleeve of the CD single
comes printed not only with lyrics but with full sheet music for On The
Radio, so you can play along at home, on air Casiotone or your little
sister's xylophone. Fantastic.
