“Sweden” sees DCW eschew their usual bleak urban storytelling for a stream-of-consciousness reverie about dreams, possibilities and the crushing disappointments of reality. The band grind out a cyclical nagging 2 note guitar line, which grows into a bee-loud headache as Tom Mayne’s detached Mancunian voiceover appears like interference from another station, a scientist explaining a weather pattern. Omega-3 fish oils, Annabel Croft, Ingmar Bergman, sex, repetition.

“What can you do when you can only raise a smile? My troubles with women? As Groucho said: ‘I wouldn’t want to belong to any club which would have me as a member’”

This 5 track Swedenfest features “Sweden” sung in Welsh and 3 remixes. South London-based Oculus III: ethereal psy-trance. 18 year-old North Londoner 8Spirit: cut-ups filtered through cold Swedish sunlight. New Zealand-based David Apple: analogue synth-pop (the mix to check if you want to hear the words clearly!).
