Release date: Today
Artist: Boeoes Kaelstigen
Title: Be the Lights (feat Name the Pet)
Label: Adrian Recordings
On the b-side we find Boeoes Kaelstigen’s heart breaking cover of Icona Pop’s "Just Another Night".
Movement and change have always been fundamental parts of Boeoes Kaelstigen’s music. Starting with its debut album – the duo explored how a future society scrambles to recover following a dystopian catastrophe.
Boeoes Kaelstigen is now back in the studio, painting a new picture of the future. This time the starting point is where humanity’s exploration of space meets the Swedish identity.
The space theme becomes a canvas to explore what happens when we meet the unknown. A story about letting go, and not the least, about trying.
Be the Lights
The first single is written together with Stockholm based producer and popstar Hanna Brandén, known as Name the Pet. Be the Lights touches on both space and love at the same time. It’s a glimmering artifact from far, far away.
Just Another Night (Icona Pop Cover)
Boeoes Kaelstigen plays to their strengths, combining both hopefulness and desolation in a vocoder saturated cover of Icona Pop’s Just Another Night. The cover is played regularly since its live debut in Swedish public radio P3 Musikguiden in April. A crisp studio version comes as the single b-side.
"it’s a warm, straightforward piece of synth-pop, not far from the work of Robyn or Röyksopp."
