Genre/Influences: Electro-pop.

Background/Info: Swedish electro-pop formation Kaos! strikes back with a new single. Eva Kaxe and Kristian Oscarsson have released two albums and several singles/EPs, which all are driven by electro-pop vibes. “Still” is their newest single.

Content: Sweden remains a prolific ground for electro-pop music and Kaos! is just one promising band among the list. The song is driven by a typical deep, pop bass line with a vintage touch on top. The chorus reveals a more catchy and melodic arrangement.

+ + + : “Still” remains faithful to what Kaos! has shown on their previous work. It’s an interesting electro-pop format carried by cool female vocals. The main evolution on “Still” is the accentuated melodic aspect running throughout the chorus. I also like the somewhat vintage-like flavor hanging over this cut.

– – – : One single song is not that much to get an objective perception about a band and their evolution in sound. I’m convinced they still can do better by accentuating the melodic aspect of their work.

Conclusion: “Still” is a well-crafted and efficient electro-pop song confirming the growing experience of Kaos!

Best songs: “Still”.

Rate: (7).

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
