This morning, I was so excited about this debut that I listened to it with a huge smile on my face at least three times on repeat while dancing around my living room and talking to myself. Yes, my cat gave me some very odd stares. Take a listen to new Swedish electropop act Wildhart’s Stuck In A Second and you might understand why I lost it for a bit. The potent newcomers’ first single is a stunning, intense, and magnificent listen. Wildhart is described as having their feet in jazz and improvisation music, and that’s certainly detectable on the heady, complex production and its enchanting, flittery atmosphere. There’s a future pop synthiness that evokes Purity Ring blended with Little Dragon, altogether paired with the icy, ethereal Scandinavian qualities of acts like The Knife, Oh Land, and Niki And The Dove. There’s also a crystalline brittleness to the softly pulsing gem, painting a picture of wistful vulnerability. Stuck In A Second is a magical tune, and I’m stuck in all five minutes, fourteen seconds of it.
