Wildcard (week 22):
boy pablo – 50 Souls And A Discobowl

One of last year’s best singles in my opinion was Losing You by boy pablo, a Norwegian group of high school best friends, fronted by now 20-year-old Pablo Muñoz. Recently, they recorded two Spotify Singles at the streaming platform’s Stockholm studio. One of them a new version of Ready/Problems, the original of which featured on the band’s 2017 debut EP Roy Pablo; the other a cover of 50 Souls And A Discobowl, a Norwegian indie classic by The Lionheart Brothers, dating from 2007.

“It is a song I have listened to since I was a kid,” Muñoz says in a press release. “I remember the feeling I had the first time I heard the song, and I remember that I think it sounds amazing. I wanted to take the song out of the sound it had original and make it more modern, just to give it some light and attention again. I think it was a great way to show off this cool underground band from Norway, which in my opinion never got the attention they deserved while they were active,” he adds.

Mission accomplished, as far as I’m concerned. 50 Souls And A Discobowl sounds totally fresh and contemporary, without throwing the charm and drive of the original overboard. Just like Losing You in 2018, 50 Souls And A Discobowl by boy pablo is this week’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard!

In the Wildcards 2019 playlist you can find all of this year’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcards so far.
