Following the path of Swedish artists like Tafra and Springfactoryâ€”both familiar names to the Series II Records crowdâ€”Oh Sweet Music! is another lovable twee-ish Swedish pop group. The band features several members, some of which simply are â€œfriends on stageâ€.
One of five groups to contribute several tracks to Series II Compilation Volume 1, Oh Sweet Music! mixes whistle pop (â€œFour Long Yearsâ€) with sad pop ballads (â€œLong Time Since Bedtimeâ€). â€œMy Trip To Asiaâ€ details just that and features a chorus of trumpets and a jazzy guitar shuffle.
â€œSong For Iraqâ€ is probably my favorite from the group and thus it is the one Iâ€™ve included below for your listening pleasure. In fact, the softer, more ballad-esque tunes are where Oh Sweet Music! shines the most.
Series II Compilation Volume 1 is out now on Series II Records.
