I don’t know what it is, but there seems to be a definite rise in good music coming out of Sweden. Whether this is a new wave, or me just catching on, I don’t know, but I’m constantly amazed at the talent that is around.

This is a band I found via my friends at the BeatPick label. I was actually just surfing through their site and found Mole. As soon as I heard the first track”Say My Name” from their self titled EP, I had a pangs of nostalgia, taking me back to the BritPop explosion of the 90’s. There’s an undeniable energy that surges through this great EP.

“Dive” shows a mellower side to the band, but that undeniable energy is still there. Musically and indeed on occasion vocally, I’m reminded a lot of Robbie Williams. The lyrics certainly have that Robbie flow to them. “I Still Believe in Love” has a great, almost ambient piano intro. The track itself is probably my favorite on this 4 track EP.

Unfortunately the EP rounds off, with the almost forgettable “For You”, sounding a bit like a poor copy of ColdPlay. Maybe I’m a bit harsh on this track, but I’m getting kind of ColdPlayed out.

Conclusion : A fantastic EP showcasing just one of the many talented bands in Sweden. I look forward to a full album release in the near future.
