This Is Our Jam: Verdensrommet, "Nytt"

verdensrommet-nytt
While Sweden may have been something of an indie-pop hotbed recently with bands like The Tough Alliance, Jens Lekman, and Peter Bjorn and John, the rest of Scandinavia hasn’t been sitting idle. Enter: Verdensrommet, a project founded by 18-year-olds Andreas Høvset and Vetle Vik Gundersen, who hail from Skien, Norway.

Verdensrommet's new single “Nytt” is a beautifully realized piece of pop, with sweet guitars and an evocative, low-sung croon that takes equal influence from Animal Collective and The Smiths (with a dash of Phil Spector’s string arrangements). For two teenagers singing in Norwegian, “Nytt” is remarkably universal; don’t let the language barrier bother you — everything you need to know is in the melody.
