Stockholm, Sweden’s Maja Francis lures me in again with her siren like vocals on new song Come Companion. Labeled fantasy pop, Come Companion is certainly a fantastically ravishing electronic pop anthem from a singer songwriter that appeals to the part of me that loves Kate Bush and Kyla La Grange. Glassy and refined Come Companion will be the title track on Maja Francis’ debut EP, due out later this month.

The moment I heard Maja Francis’ siren like voice when she revealed debut electronic pop gem Last Days Of Dancing earlier this year, I was hooked. I’m a huge fan of Kate Bush, I also happen to love Swedish electronic pop very much. It only follows that Maja Francis’ enchanting sound is the perfect confection for me. Today, Maja Francis offers up a spellbinding cover of Billy Joel classic Just The Way You Are, transforming it into a powerful, mystical pop ballad miles away from the original. And it’s magnificent! Let’s re-visit Last Days Of Dancing below, too, while we’re at it. I love it dearly.

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.
