Swedish soaring pop duo The Sound of Arrows have seen a host of diverse artists produce their own take on the gloriously skyscraping new single ‘Nova’, from Tiesto to II Figures. Now Matador’s most exciting new act Esben & the Witch replace The Sound of Arrows’ neon hued fantasia with their own sepia tones and brooding electronics.
The remix is now up for free download here:
This spring, The Sound of Arrows return to the pop fray with a brand new single, the first to be taken from their hotly anticipated debut album, to be released on Geffen later this year. Single ‘Nova’ is released on 12” vinyl and digital download on April 25th and is accompanied by an incredible other-worldly DIY video, even surpassing the celestial beauty of their last.

When we last left them, the Swedish duo of Stefan Storm and Oskar Gullstrand had just released their debut UK single ‘Into the Clouds’. This time, for the appropriately named ‘Nova’, The Sound of Arrows aim not only for the skies, but seemingly the very stratosphere itself. Indeed, as Storm sings wistfully about escape and his restless longing for “something better” (“if I stay in this place, every hour is another day”), a lush orchestra of synth beams, effortless melodies and symphonic beats whips up around him, creating an instantly infectious and heart-swelling anthem in waiting for our modern times.
And this is but a tantalising glimpse into what The Sound of Arrows have planned for the rest of the year – with the debut full length pretty much in the can and a slew of live dates and festival appearances also planned for the summer, 2011 could very well be theirs for the taking.
