Witterings from an old indie kid
Chicas De Madrid sees Swedish indie/synth pop legends Red Sleeping Beauty join forces with Elefant’s Spanish Pineapple Princess Cristina Quesada. It’s written by Niklas Angergård of the former whilst the latter applies her voice. It’s a rework of New York City Girls from Red Sleeping Beauty’s recent Stockholm album.
It’s a slow paced synth pop track that glides along nicely thanks to the vocals with pointers being the likes of Saint Etienne, Hop Chip and even The K.L.F. It’s backed with a rework (cover version?) of Quesada’s recent Love At Third Sight single with the male vocals giving the song a completely new look and angle. Chicas De Madrid is out now in a range of digital formats.
