The Weight Of It All is a rather weightless and sleek affair on this melodic indie dance remix of the Handsome Ghost song by Sweden’s Cape Lion. The synthpop duo give us a richly smooth edit whose chill coolness gives off a thrilling yet introspective effect. It’s been raining all week here in San Francisco, and it feels as if I’m in the midst of a tropical monsoon rather than a California El Nino while listening to the remix. The original comes from Handsome Ghost’s Steps EP, which you can stream in full on Soundcloud.

It’s been over a year since I last gleefully featured Swedish synthpop duo Cape Lion, but today, I’m even more gleeful to share with you their brand new single Called You Mine. It is, quite possibly, their very best yet. Sweeping, bursting production and an enveloping, warm radiance gives the track a most contagious blissfulness, while the song’s melody and vocals are inescapably hooking. Let this one take you sky high.

OFFICIAL VID: Cape Lion – Called You Mine

April 3, 2014

Swedish duo Cape Lion captured my attention a month ago with their soaring synthpop music. They reminded me greatly of many indie alt pop acts from everywhere but Sweden, and every Cape Lion song I listened to was warm, powerful, and infectious. Today, the duo premiered a music video for their sweeping single Called You Mine. And I still dig the song tons. It has all the makings of an indie hit. Think Passion Pit meets Atlas Genius and Miami Horror. Mmmm good.

A few weeks ago, I discovered a new Swedish duo by the name of Cape Lion. They proceeded to impress me with every one of their three tunes on their Soundcloud profile. Their brand of euphoric synthpop appealed to me immediately, reminding me at times of CHVRCHES, other times Capital Cities when more funky. Today, they have a new one for us. Called You Mine is another gorgeous, sweeping synthpop song that shines lustrously. It proves to me I was certainly right in calling them a band to watch. Revisiting Brother, Jennie, and You Kept Dreaming below.

Introducing: Cape Lion

February 9, 2014

Freshly discovered last night (and quite fortunately) is this Swedish duo named Cape Lion. In their year of existence or so, they have three tunes out, and every single one of them is deliciously catchy and great. Their alt leaning synthpop sound reminds me more of acts from Australia, or Brooklyn NY, maybe even the UK or Germany, so it was a surprise to find out they’re from Sweden. The quality of their songs begs to question why they haven’t received more attention so far, but it also shows how much potential they have going into the future. Brother is their latest track with delicious, CHVRCHES like stabbing synths. It follows on the heels of last year’s irresistible electropop track Jennie with its touch of Capital Cities like nu-disco and funk sheen. You Kept Dreaming was their debut song before Jennie, and it’s a bouncing, addictive synthpop track too. I’m hooked on all three. I can easily listen to them on repeat looped for hours. Watch these guys, they could really make some waves as the next year or so progresses!
