Wildcard (week 44):
Smith & Thell – Pixie’s Parasol

I once had a cat named Pixie, so every time her name pops up somewhere, my attention is drawn. For example when Swedish duo Maria Jane Smith and Victor Thell released their sophomore album Pixies’s Parasol, early this year. I already wrote about the single Radioactive Rain. It’s one out of two songs on the long-player that was co-written by Joakim Berg. He used to be the front man of one of my favourite ‘90s bands, Kent.

Funnily, there was no track on the album called Pixie’s Parasol. Now, out of the blue, it’s the title of Smith & Thell’s new single. Once again co-written by Berg, it’s a super catchy song. Not in the least because of its resemblance to France Gall’s Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son. If you like upbeat guitar-pop songs and sing-along choruses with an edge, this one’s for you.

Pixie’s Parasol by Smith & Thell is this week’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard, so it’ll feature prominently on the blog for seven full days!
