Sweden’s all-female Those Dancing Days named themselves after a Led Zeppelin song and there’s something of that ferocity present right from the get-go on the group’s new album Daydreams and Nightmares. “Reaching Forward” comes barreling out of the gate as an adrenalin soaked anthem and a statement of purpose for their sophomore record. Those Dancing Days has also fine-tuned their sound as a result of the hard work touring they’ve done over the past few years. Lisa Pyk Wirström says, “all the live touring has really made an impact. When you stand on stage, you really want to max out. Now we have maxed out in the studio as well.” Daydreams and Nightmares is out today via Wichita Recordings.

Now she’s back with “I Want More”, a bangin’ dance-pop number that’s both an ode to rampant consumerism and a rather clever expose of the simultaneous crassness of those earthly desires—“more toilet paper, I’m the shit” has to be the best line. The tune is also the signature song for a scholarship program that the artist has launched called Futures Scholarship Program, which seeks to “encourage those who have a passion for their future and embrace society and culture positively”.
