Blaue Blume – “Helen”

We’ve already highlighted just how totally and completely Scandinavia is killing the pop music game, but don’t forget that there’s also a surfeit of great guitar music coming from those majestic Northern European countries. Blaue Blume are from Copenhagen, and make glistening indie-rock that encompasses trembling, quavering vocals which skip and trip over a moody backdrop. With definite similarities to one of my favourite current UK groups, Wild Beasts, especially in terms of the lead singer’s delivery, “Helen” builds slowly, precisely, but with an engaging ominous edge.

In short it’s great, so check out “Helen” below, premiered today by The Line of Best Fit.
