Envelopes – Sister In Love (CD Review)

‘Sister In Love’ is brashly, egregiously and unremittingly happy and strange. After several listens it makes no more sense to me than when I first heard it. For all that, and most likely because of it, I am finding myself liking the bizarre Swedish popsters. There are remixes available on the 10″ version of the single from Sam E Danger who adds squelchy effects, calliope style diversions and a metronomic drum beat that makes the whole track even stranger and more lovable. The Clor remix – incidentally the only track to go over 3 minutes on either of these singles, Envelopes clearly prefer to be short and sweet – is by far the most ‘normal’ despite the zooming effects whooshing in from the left-field and the curiously progressive backing.

The CD is backed with the delightfully electro-folksy ‘The Nicotines’ and an acoustic version of ‘It Is The Law’. Envelopes released debut album ‘Demon’ earlier this month.
