There is nothing more satisfying in this world than when one of your favorite popstars come back with new music. I'm talking about "Black, White, & Blue" by Ladyhawke. Like "Applause" by Lady Gaga. Like "Froot" by Marina & The Diamonds!!! A unicorn is born whenever this momentous occasion happens.
2015 is starting with a nice Swedish bang thanks to the return of Vanbot. For those who don't know, Vanbot are an electropop duo from the most magical place on Earth, Sweden. Ester sings the songs while Sebastian makes the music (possibly just Ester now, very La Roux of her). Their crystalline bubbly synth pop is all shades of classic Robyn and their debut album was in the top 3 of 2011. After an extended hiatus, with a couple of bits of music along the way, Vanbot came back this month with "Trooper." It's more of the same really but when you have something so amazing to start with, why would you mess with it? Their second album is coming out soon and hopefully they ride that unicorn to album of the year.
