HandS - No Romance
Every now and then, I come across a well crafted piece of pure pop music that really gets me excited, despite my reservations about the genré in general. One such song that has really grabbed me is the song "No Romance" by Norwegian duo HandS.
Proving once again that the purveyors of the finest pop hail from Scandinavia, "No Romance" features a main riff that has echoes of "The Final Countdown" by Europe, mixed with the production of Robyn, and a massive guitar riff in the chorus that has a feeling of New Order about it.
With the right backing behind them, HandS have the potential to have a smash hit right across Europe, with a sophisticated production to please the pop fans, and trendy influences to appease the indie crowd. Let's just hope that the world sits up and takes notice.
