SpaceScan10 #22: Treefight For Sunlight and Pearl Fiction
Two acts with debuts coming out later this year are in this week’s SpaceScan, as we present Danish quartet Treefight For Sunlight, who deliver sunny, 60s-tinged poprock, and Swedish one man electropop band Pearl Fiction, who does nothing to hide his infatuation with the music of the neon decade (that would be the 80s, if you’re wondering). Check them out…

A couple of SpaceScans back we presented twin duo Kirsten & Marie, one signing to new label Tambourhinoceros run by Oh No Ono members Aske Zidore and Kristoffer Rom. Another is Treefight For Sunlight, who will release their debut album in August. Right now the Danish quartet have their first single ‘Facing The Sun’ out, and it’s a… Well, sunny pop gem sharing common ground with the label owners’ own musical output. Liking it a lot…

It’s pretty hard not to think Prince when listening to ‘Insomnia’ by Swedish disco popper Pearl aka Per Störby, one of the two tracks streaming on MySpace. The other day the former main man of now defunct Zeigeist released the other, ‘The Ruby Fever’ (in the player), as first single off his debut album as Pearl Fiction, which is due out this fall, and if you dig downbeat, funky and very 80s pop this is one for you.
WHO DO YOU THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD HEAR?

We do reserve the right not to feature your band(s), but we guarantee to check them out. Drop links to: spacescan (a) allscandinavian.com
