We were in Austin for SXSW when ORKID released her buzzworthy debut single Wasted. We immediately included it on our Soundcloud playlist when we returned to California. The commotion she riled up with the release has only grown stronger since, and now that the 21 year old Swedish chanteuse has dropped her second single So Rude, she’s right on track for a speedy ascent in the pop world. So Rude is feisty yet sweet, a kinetic electro-pop track on which she shares: “So Rude was written with no particular person in mind. At the time I was waiting tables at this restaurant, so Lucas and me wrote this song about all the rude guests you encounter on a regular basis. I like the idea that when you hear the song you’ll probably think it’s about a relationship, but when you know the true story behind it it’s actually kind of funny.”  The inspiration behind ORKID’s new single may be light-hearted, but she holds no punches when it comes to So Rude’s crafty lyrics and propulsive pop. So Rude can be found on iTunes, here. Re-visit debut single Wasted below.

I still can’t get Sälen’s Diseasey out of my mind, not that I’m really trying, either. The East London trio’s bubbly infectious electro pop is so addicting, particularly because its both sweetly candied and darkly twisted. Sälen returns with more of that cheekiness on effervescent new single So Rude, a whimsical dalliance involving elements both acoustic and electric. The playful charmer is out now via Island Records. Re-visit Diseasey and other fine treats at the trio’s Soundcloud, here.
