Arriving on a rainy day that has otherwise summarily stunk, praise be to Stockholm's emerging star Little Jinder and her video for "Vita Bergens Klockor," which has rekindled in me the fuck-em-all feeling of Icona Pop's "I Love It" from two summer's ago, except this one is sung in Swedish, which by not inviting me to sing along is an even better F-em-all, kind of. Hungover with her face in a pillow printed with her own face, Jinder opens the clip lying before a poster of drunken LiLo and one that shouts "Hey there nice cum!" Congratulations on leveling up as a human, I'm not there yet! RIP the game; come collect your prize!!! The beat to "Vita" has got just enough Toto "Africa" in it to set off a life's worth of good memories, and I think the lyrics are about how night is our time, and regretting drinking too much, and how everything hurts, and "och tänker det var bättre förut," which is thinking things were better before. It's a song so solid it's got the enterprising Swedish duo Rebecca & Fiona singing backup in their native tongue for the first time on record. For my part, I'll be running back tens of replays.
“HEY MAN NICE CUM!” and Other Highlights from Little Jinder’s “Vita Bergens Klockor” Video
The best Swedish pop anthem since “I Love It”? Little Jinder teams up with Rebecca & Fiona to shake off their hangovers and start the fun again.
