A lot of music is Bad Music. In the whole world, there is definitely more Bad Music than there is Good Music. That is why it’s such a relief when you find something that is Good Music, actually proper good music, certified Hot Shit that sounds good and everything.
Death Team are Good Music. Of course they are, they’re Swedish, and as academics have proven time and time again, nothing bad ever comes from Sweden. Consisting of Maja Edelbring and Johen Rafael Tilli, Death Team are a trippy synth duo blending elements of rap, hip-hop and electro to whip up dizzying cocktails of frothy Tumblr-pop for the uber-hip and probably pink-haired.
Their latest single, ‘Messed Up’ is a dead good bit of music, if you like shit hot music that is, and well worth your time if you’re up for a bit of shiny pop music with a big focus on aesthetic.
If you’re a fan of Grimes, Carly Rae Jepsen or Kreayshawn, you’ll be into Death Team’s vibey kitsch stylings. But with their odd mix of glitchy electronic riffs, warped vocals and lyrics about unicorns, dolphins and bitches, there is the distinct feel that Death Team don’t really give a fuck if you like their tunes or not.
