Having released their second album From Paris With Love in recent weeks, Swedish sunshine-pop purveyors Alpaca Sports have followed it with equally Gallic-inspired single ‘Eiffel Tower’.
Revolving around the talents of Andreas Jonsson & Lisle Mitnik, Alpaca Sports well paired with Spanish label Elefant Records, who’ve plenty of form for pushing irresistible pop. ‘Eiffel Tower’ is a bright, breezy and heartfelt piece of piano-pop perfection, capturing a night in Paris beneath the famed tower. A timeless pop earworm, ‘Eiffel Tower’ skips along a jaunty rhythm surrounded by gorgeous melodies, rich instrumentation and chimes as the interspersed girl/boy vocals of Jonsson, joined by Amanda Åkerman capturing precious moments. For all the chiming and joyous sounds, this is juxtaposed by a real sense of longing however; avoiding any chance of being too twee or saccharine sweet. An irresistible piece of pure pop perfection – so, so good!
