You can add Maja Francis (Ma-ya Fran-sis) to my list of Swedish acts I dig, because her debut song, Last Days Of Dancing, is a soaring electronic pop song that reminds me of some acts I love very dearly. Her voice immediately evokes Kate Bush, with a touch of Malin from Niki and the Doves. The driving, uptempo melody of Last Days Of Dancing also brings to mind some of Robyn’s infectious hits. Plus, there’s a spirited radiance within the song that comes at us warmly like a blend of NONONO and The Royal Concept. Ah, yes, Maja reminds me why I really, really love music from that side of the world. Last Days Of Dancing is a splendid first pop anthem from an intriguing newcomer. Maja released a video today for the song, which will see a release in the U.S. this summer. She’ll also be playing Way Out West 2015 and is currently supporting Tove Lo and Seinabo Sey on select dates in Scandinavia.
