A few days ago, Sweden’s finest currently active pop band made a radio session recorded for KEXP available for download via their website. The set contains acoustic renditions of three songs, taken one from each of their albums, aswell as a live version of the moderate-bashing anthem “The New Improved Hypocrisy”. The brightest shining track is “Heaven’s on Fire”, the awkwardly titled yet danceable live favourite which has here been turned into a heartbroken, piano-driven ballad centered around those mesmerizing chorus lines:
It seems like everyone is on your side
We’re outnumbered by those who take on pride
In constantly moving against the tide
Charlatans just out of reach and out of time
The whole thing can be downloaded from here.
