Ok, the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but then who cares when you’ll probably be whistling their tunes for the rest of year. No doubt there’s a deep and meaningful behind why this Swedish quintet decided to call themselves Hari and Aino but for the moment we’ll swap idle speculation for overdone superlatives. Yeah, ‘Second Song’ is that good, a touch of Blondie and acres of chiming chords will get you far in my book, in fact it’s already made its way onto the cobbled together follow up. Mostly unsigned but getting the royal Cloudberry Records single treatment this is just another reason to believe that at this very moment in time Stockholm, not NYC or London is the centre of the indie pop universe. In this regard Hari and Aino might just be its milky way. KD
