Copenhagen-based outfit Retro Kid have endeared themselves to us with a series of irresistible electronic productions over the past 18 months or so.
Preferring a place between indie-music-to-dance-to and electronica, stylistically their work brings to mind the likes of Caribou, Hot Chip and Mount Kimbie, and with latest single ‘Sweet Nothings’ Retro Kid repeat the trick. Featuring BRN & Christiane, ‘Sweet Nothings’ is an exquisite piece of indie-electronica that is somewhere between club land and chilled electronica. Propelled through the atmospheric haze by an infectious deep house groove, it moves with a glacial elegance amid an ever increasing winding intensity with murmuring synth, samples and succession of slick beats. Intense yet chilled, ‘Sweet Nothings’ is treated to one final coat of gloss by the graceful (and soulful) vocals of Luke Byrne and Christian & Christiane Karoline Kjærgaard.
