Out today on all digital plaforms via the Charlottenlund-based Danish label Town & Towers Records, is a new Cold Connection single, “Bright”. “Bright” is actually one of Cold Connection’s very first demos. It is the first single taken from Cold Connection’s forthcoming EP.

The song was originally written by former member Jonas Lindelöf, and with his blessing, brought back to (new) life with new vocals and new music.

“We wanted to create an up-tempo synthpop song, that works on the dancefloor. We kept the original melody line and rearranged the song a bit with a new bridge and instrumental parts. We also made it a bit darker and atmospheric. You might recognize some inspiration from Rational Youth”, says Daniel from Cold Connection. And he adds: “The song is about you, me and everyone else who from time to time just want to leave this earth and all the horrible things mankind is doing to each other… together in a spaceship for destination love”.

Cold Connection is a Swedish synthpop act whose debut album “Seconds of Solitude” was released by Town & Towers Records in 2021. The album was followed in 2022 by a remix album including remixes by People Theatre, Patrick Kambo, ill Humans (Arvid Arays), and a lot of other Nordic synth acts, like Disrupted Being, and Dan and Ole from Vaylon. In 2022 Cold Connection participated on the Andrew Fletcher Memorial Double charity CD called “6122” with a cover version of “My Secret Garden”.

Below you can see the video for the song.

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.
