There’s a classic backing to the music Eva & The Heartmaker create; part soul, part pop, and, yeah, toss in a bit of rock as well. If you’re looking for something groundbreaking, Let’s Keep This Up Forever is not likely to satisfy your taste buds, but if you dig that classic mainstream pop sound circa the late 60s and early 70s, you’ll be right at home with Eva.
With clean guitars, funky bass lines, and soulful keys and vocals, it’s easy to get in a head-nodding mood with tracks like “Let’s Hit The Road Jack” and “Superhero”. This Norwegian-gone-Swedish duo makes excellent background music. Let’s Keep This Up Forever is an album contemporary in makeup and ripe for the modern mainstream; I’d feel comfortable listening to these tracks with my parents. But that may be the extent of it.
