New LP news and free MP3 from Those Dancing Days

Those Dancing Days
Sweden’s northern soul flecked indiepopsters Those Dancing Days will release their second album Daydreams and Nightmares in the UK on 7 March, 2011 via Wichita Recordings.

“Fuckarias,” Those Dancing Days’ first video off Daydreams and Nightmares, has premiered exclusively on SPIN.com. Directed by Mats Udd, the clip for the song can now be seen here. Fans can also head to the band’s website for an advance free download package that includes: the “Fuckarias” MP3; single artwork; song lyrics; and a baseball card-style photo of each band member, complete with a quote from the song. The Fuckarias single is also available now via all major digital retailers.

Daydreams and Nightmares was recorded over the past spring, summer, and autumn with producer Patrik Berger in Stockholm.
The press release goes onto explain the new sound:

The 11 tracks show a distinct evolution in sound from the charming indie pop of Those Dancing Days’ 2008 debut LP, In Our Space Hero Suits. While maintaining the evocative vivacity of that debut, the five young women (all aged 20-22) of Those Dancing Days have added broadened dynamics and a playful ferocity to the songs on Daydreams and Nightmares. Filled with soaring choruses led by singer Linnea Jönsson’s honeyed vocals, the songs are in many ways about all kinds of dreams, nightmares, and wishes. Angular guitars and thundering drums lead the charge on album bookends “Reaching Forward” and the winsome “One Day Forever” (a duet with The Maccabees’ Orlando Weeks), while elsewhere the songs range from the blissful pure pop of “I’ll Be Yours” to the New Wave-tinged, starry-eyed “Dream About Me”, and from the hook-laden, glistening “Can’t Find Entrance” to the wistful, reluctant build of “When We Fade Away.” Those Dancing Days’ musicianship shines through across the album, honed over the past two years of touring all over the world.

Daydreams and Nightmares track listing:

1. Reaching Forward
2. I’ll Be Yours
3. Dream About Me
4. Help Me Close My Eyes
5. Can’t Find Entrance
6. Fuckarias
7. Forest Of Love
8. When We Fade Away
9. Keep Me In Your Pocket
10.I Know Where You Live Pt. 2
11.One Day Forever

Those Dancing Days play a short, three-date run of shows in the UK next week, including a performance at the Belle & Sebastian-curated ATP Bowlie 2 festival in Minehead on December 10th. Those Dancing Days UK tour dates:

December
08 - The Lexington, London
09 - Buffalo Bar, Cardiff
10 - ATP Bowlie 2, Minehead
