I might be the only one, but the electro-pop groove of “Marchin In” by Sweden’s Lo-Fi-Fnk immediately reminded me of Lykke Li’s “I’m Good, I’m Gone.” Could be the fact that both are from Stockholm, or that they both have a knack for creating rhythms to tap your toes and clap your hands to. Lo-Fi-Fnk are Leo Drougge and August Hellsing, and the duo is said to be hard at work on a follow up to their sophomore LP The Last Summer. They’ve toured in support of Architecture in Helsinki, and have shared stages with Hot Chip, Crystal Castles and Junior Boys. “Marchin In” is a slow-burning groover somewhat reminiscent of Canadian outfit Of Montreal.
Lo-Fi-Fnk will be playing a short string of US tour dates beginning November 12, and I have to imagine that seeing their live show is akin to a very funky, very friendly dance party. See what I mean by checking out “Marchin In” below.
