Superheroes

Thanks to the interesting (and fairly new) Danish music blog emodreng og indiepige, I learned yesterday that several songs by Danish band Superheroes are available for free from the band's webpage. Even though the music is rather uncomplicated danceable pop music, I've never really been a fan of the band. I recall when I bought the album Igloo in 2000 that reviewers described the music as being very 80'ish, which I believe was quite unusual back then. So I guess you could say that the band was retro in a premature way? The band is pretty much the brainchild of former wunderkind (he's 25 now), songwriter, producer, singer etc. Thomas Troelsen, who's probably most well-known for producing Junior Senior. The two tracks below are both taken from Igloo and arguably the two best ones from that album!
+ What's Going On
+ Nightmare

Igloo is the superheroes album i've been most bored with. I like their selftitled album much better. The opening track is really making my feet move. Turn me on and Watch out for the lord is also recommendable.
