NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 014

PUSHY PARENTS was born as a project which was created exclusively for the studio and not for live performances. It was a special type of laboratory experiment, with a super band comprised of four musicians with an array of experiences in other groups, where some even worked as composers, producers and DJs for other respectable artists. Amanda Aldervall always proclaimed herself as a big fan of Amelia Fletcher and she demonstrated that with FREE LOAN INVESTMENTS, and then later with THE BUSY BAND and currently with her solitary project, THE ANDERSEN TAPES, which just released, “As I Write 'Today' Ten Times”. Roger Gunnarsson is another key figure in the current twee pop scene, as he was an important member of the FREE LOAN INVESTMENTS, THE HAPPY BIRTHDAYS and THE GARLANDS. If we had to highlight just one aspect of the career of Gunnarsson, it would be his solitary project, NIXON, with various records released, increasing their fan base tremendously, within the indie pop world, and of course, with the compositions and productions for Cloetta Paris and Sally Saphiro. The third member in question is Daniel Jansson, former member of THE CONSEQUENCES but better known for playing and composing songs with the reputable Swedish singer, winner of various Swedish Grammy Awards, Anna Ternheim. Finally, Le Prix has been known throughout the music world for productions and remixes, as well as compositions for artists such as Kylie Minogue and Sally Saphiro.

Let’s talk about the first reference because the four compositions included in this limited edition 7” forms part of our collection of groups, “New Adventures in Pop”, which demonstrates from the beginning to end, an unmistakable personality in which the pop melodies of eternal breath, the marksmanship of Swedish pop, blend together in an exquisitely produced ambience. The background of this group is clear, once you hear the end of “He’s My Saturday”, a precious song which starts off sounding like Nancy Sinatra and little by little converts into a bit of NORTHERN SOUL, finishing with those choruses and bells until you get your fill. When you hear the rhythm of the dignified hit, “Secret Secret”, filled with the robust base sounds, you will see for yourself they are tremendously addictive, as if VELOCETTE covered Skeeter Davis under the musical supervision of SLOWDIVE. “Hold Me Tight or Let Me Go” is the perfect song, halfway between THE SMITHS, SAMBASSADEUR and EVEN AS WE SPEAK. After three incredible pop songs with a sixties feel, they say goodbye with “Dear John”, a mix between synth pop and dream pop, such as LUSH and PACIFIC. These songs could possibly be sampled by THE GO! TEAM and fans of BROADCAST would be proud.

Four perfect songs, created and conceived with an enormous amount of detail paid to the sound, such as the arrangements, together with incredible and emotional lyrics focused on love and personal relationships.

Track Name: Secret Secret
Maybe it’s because I wanted to know
How it felt to be free and wanted again
To take it all in to see where I could go
Where the winds would take me to the shore

You did all to please me
I won’t fall that easy

Secret Secret, tears me apart
Why did I follow my heart?
I gave you the truth you don’t know what it means
I gave you the love that I kept in my dreams
Secret Secret, look at me now
Wasting the time of my life
Late in the night you were talking to me
I was a fool, you were simple and free

Maybe it’s time to shake things around
To use all the moments that I found
Predicting the life that I could lead
There’s so much around to be noticed and seen

You did all to please me
I won’t fall that easy

Secret Secret, tears me apart
Why did I follow my heart?
I gave you the truth you don’t know what it means
I gave you the love that I kept in my dreams
Secret Secret, look at me now
Wasting the time of my life
Late in the night you were talking to me
I was a fool, you were simple and free

It’s easy said it will be alright
Never wanted to start a fight

Secret Secret, tears me apart
Why did I follow my heart?
I gave you the truth you don’t know what it means
I gave you the love that I kept in my dreams
Secret Secret, look at me now
Wasting the time of my life
Late in the night you were talking to me
I was a fool you were simple and free
Track Name: Hold Me Tight Or Let Me Go
Hold me tight or let me go
Half-heartedly I won’t know
If it’s the way we are when we’re together

Close the book and blow the light
You mistook me before the fight
For someone hesitant and easily pushed over

I hope you regret for some time
Making me sad not wondering why
No one should make you feel that way
There’s no excuse, no excuse

As I lay me down to sleep
I won’t think because it’ll make me weep
You will never feel content that’s it
So you’ll be sad and lonely everyday

There’s something going on
That makes us turning wrong
No one to hold you close
Keep you safe and sound
We had a chance

Hold me tight or let me go
Half-heartedly I won’t know
If it’s the way we are when we’re together

Close the book and blow the light
Track Name: He's My Saturday
He’s not a fool
He’s not an ordinary guy who set the rules
I can’t explain
The way it felt when he stood close and grabbed my hand

Oh last night we stayed up late
But at least that’s something

He’s my Saturday
He makes a week of clouds just go away
This is the right time
Oh lord above me
Please make him love me

He’s my Saturday
He makes the Mondays, Tuesdays feel ok
I never knew that I could fall this hard
Please make him love me

I stayed inside
I stayed inside the day he took her for a ride
He’s not at home
He’s not at home and I swear he’s not alone

Oh I wish I’d done so much
Instead of nothing

He’s my Saturday
He makes a week of clouds just go away
This is the right time
Oh lord above me
Please make him love me

He’s my Saturday
He makes the Mondays, Tuesdays feel ok
I never knew that I could fall this hard
Please make him love me

Why can’t you see how much I needed you that day
I was here but you where somewhere far away
How come it felt like all your feeling went away
When I asked you to stay
Why did you shy away
Track Name: Dear John
When you turn the page
You should read it out loud
Then take it from the start
Try not to fall apart
And continue

Never tried, never lost
So much easier to hide
We never had that talk
You need to know
So these things are written
Those days are gone

Suddenly I knew that time didn’t change you
Suddenly I felt that days were too long
That is why I write, Dear John

When you turn the page
I’m somewhere far away
I hope I’m finding out the reasons why
and where I am going

It’s a lot, I know
So I’ll tell you why I go
I was outside for a walk
and the birds were singing
“These are the rumours”
“These are the lies”

Suddenly I knew that you didn’t need me
Suddenly I felt my love wasn’t strong
That is why I write, Dear John
Dear John
Dear John

Suddenly I knew that you didn’t need me
Suddenly I felt my love wasn’t strong
That is why I write, Dear John
