Catchy doesn’t begin to describe Simian Ghost’s new single When You’re Ready. In fact, it’s like the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Swedish four piece’s jubilant prancing, spring frolicking indie pop anthem. When You’re Ready is like a melding of Passion Pit’s spry youthfulness and Clean Cut Kid’s lively guitar pop, and it was produced by Phoenix’s Thomas Hedlund, which helps to explain some if its vivacity, too. The song is out now via iTunes, here.

There must be some irony involved when someone presents you with a song named Stop Moving, and it’s such a smooth grooving, perky decadent jam that it’d be absurd to not move. Disco funk inflected synthpop comes our way on Swedish four piece Simian Ghost’s luxuriant single. Thomas Hedlund of Phoenix produced the track, which comes as no surprise considering the French house flavors running through Stop Moving. In fact, Stop Moving is like a juncture between Daft Punk and Phoenix. The single comes as a second taste from Simian Ghost’s forthcoming self titled full length. Stop Moving is out now on Heist Or Hit. You can also stream the suave banger off Soundcloud below.

Swedish band Simian Ghost disappeared off the map after their 2014 album The Veil, but they seem ready to make quite a comeback now that they’ve re-emerged with Fun. Fun is an incandescent sailing, carefree languorous combination of synthpop and chillwave. “Baby just have fun” coos Simian Ghost. There’s only ecstasy when wrapped in the soft folds of this quartet’s warm endearing new song, though it’s hard to escape its bittersweet stirring undercurrents, too. Here’s to hoping Fun is an indication of more new Simian Ghost on the horizon.

Have you ever heard of Simian Ghost? I just stumbled upon them, though it looks like Chuck the television series utilized a track on their soundtrack, so I must’ve heard them before. Here’s a couple tracks from Simian Ghost, who come from, of all places yet AGAIN, Sweden. Their music is chillwavy indie poppy. Bicycle Theme is much more chillwave than Free Agent, which is filled with more upbeat shoegaze. Very decent stuff!
