You ever get it when you listen to a song as literally the second it starts you know you are going to like it? This is one of them.

Stitches‘ features in Norwegian electro-pop artist Mr Little Jeans (aka Monica Birkenes) EP F E V E R S. An electro hymn on the bliss and a pain of youthful love set to the soundtrack of a neon sunsets and passionate love worthy of even the most emotional of post coital 80’s dreamscapes.

Birkenes first captured our attention with her striking, stripped-down rendition of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs.” In 2014, she released the critically beloved debut album Pocketknife, which garnered praise from press all over the world.

Quite frankly, ‘Stitches‘ simply does everything right. The vocal melodies, particularly the chorus vocal melody are irresistible and perfectly concise. We hang of every word of Mr Little Jeans‘ stunning smokey lilt that reverberates between the thick growling synth bass and the achingly emotional drones and twinkles that light this track up like a firework display.

With the balls and wistful poetry of PJ Harvey and the 80’s nostalgia of CHVRCHES, Stitches is simply an outstanding track.

Stitches appears on the EP F E V E R S, produced by long term collaborator Tim Anderson (Banks, Halsey) which is out now on Nettwerk Records.
