Limelight is the single, I-Trance is featured in a new ad campaign
merde, Limelight c'est trés FUCKING FABULOUS
Loving them both. Glad to have her back
Giving the Veritas album a spin now
Was going to make a joke about wondering if Veritas killed her career, but I remembered I was thinking of Dignitas
(RHYTHM!) Rhythm is MY REMEDY
I'm not sure which I like better - I Trance is quite hypnotic. She seems to have gone full on dance diva, though 'The first two songs to come I dedicate to the dance' on her twitter suggests it may not all be that way.
When I was typing Veritas I was thinking the exact same thing
A week in and I-Trance is definitely the one.
I do hope she has an album's worth of this hot shit.
I Trance is fucking everything. I love this woman. She keeps giving.
She's done a 3 part video for I-Trance.
Is this really her first musical outing since 2012? Veritas was really a strong pop record, impromptu top five:
1. You’re Like God
2. Walk Out of Here
3. One Last Time
5. All I Want is You
is she still with a big label? what is happening? when is this reigning the world?
perfect soundtrack to a surprise sunny Saturday
it's amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaZENG *.*
I never really responded to the little I've heard of her before, but these two tracks have just grown and grown. Hope there's more in this vein to come.
well here's my agnes top 10 for everyone who didn't want it *.*
01 love love love
03 one last time
04 i trance
05 release me
07 on and on
08 like god
10 all i want is you
These don't seem to have done much for her commercially, sadly. Limelight has 400,000 streams on Spotify which is fairly piffling for a Swedish artist (Spotify is huge there). 139,000 for I-Trance.
By way of comparison, Lena Philipsson has over a million for her most recent single and she's got a good 20 years on Agnes.
I mean, it was thrown out there with zero promo or push after a break of, what, seven years? The numbers aren't good but they can't have expected better.
new single nothing can compare.
god, i love her.
Oh yes please
it's like your favourite pair of sneakers. familiar, light, maybe a little worn but you just wanna wear them all the time.
Nothing Can Compare is pretty wonderful. A bit closer to the sound of Veritas but still with an appreciated sprinkling of this new, fuller-voiced disco diva incarnation of Agnes.
oh my god. it's a complete spectacular piece of art!
she's absolutely divine.
the whole ep (one more short track + some interludes) is here:
This is excellent. Not Dangerous is a nice little bonus too, but there definitely needs to be more to come.
yes, yes, yes.
not dangerous is not enough to follow up the brilliance of the previous three i am utterly loving everything about her these days. i love the way she's been obscured and put out of focus in the new video. in line with the artwork for the previous two singles and that was *.*
Absolute delightful set of songs, hope she will be bringing out more soon indeed. :diso:
i am positively looning out to this young woman right now. how is everything she's done so right?
listening to one last time, it actually feels more relevant than ever. the left/right channel games at the start, the start/stop feeling that follows, that desperate notion that just once more and everything could turn around...
"I Trance" is my favorite of the new songs but yes we need a full album
Her voice just does something to me, I've missed her so much. Veritas is one of my favourite albums of the last decade and I hated her leaving us hanging for more for so many years. The long gap really affected her popularity in Sweden, but I don't think she really cares about that, and when she gives us material of this quality, all is forgiven.
I only realised that she's worked with Salem al Fakir on the whole EP. I hope she doesn't leave it too long for more material and that this is just the beginning.
Apparently there are two more EPs on the way - she’s just finishing the 2nd one.
I'm LIVING for this EP. I need a full album. "I Trance" is one of my songs of the year without ANY DOUBT...
(i swear i'm not on her payroll but) i just bought ep online today (wot no vinyl?!) for 1 euro and 50 cents.
wtf? but also the best spent 1 and a half euro ever.
(not sure why but nothing can compare was the one that seems to have proper set me off... every few years there seems to be the odd amazing track that brings back the knock on wood beat)
and for the record
(in no particular order)
10 i trance
10 nothing can compare
what can i say, i grew up with 80s and 90s divas.
Limelight is just below the other two for me, but all three are pretty fucking fantastic.
hey moopy, i don't see agnes' youtube numbers doing much. you had better be listening to this on spotify or, why not even, as a legal download.
did i mention it's super cheap?
i want promo): she's never doing melodifestivalen again, is she?):
I just downloaded from iTunes without hearing a note based on all this praise from you. It better be good!
feel free to thank me!
