The new Sambassadeur single (due out 29 August) sounds like the band have been OD’ing on the Pretty in Pink soundtrack. It starts off with a Bring on the Dancing Horses string intro, moves into some If You Leave synths, then on to New Order Elegia synths and climaxes in, you guessed it, Pretty In Pink style saxophone. Leave it to the Swedes to encapsulate an entire 80’s movie soundtrack into one song. Oh, and it’s a pretty nice song too, satiating my anticipation for the new Sambassadeur album due in October via Labrador.
