Maybe this is a trend? Dark Pop?
Beatrice Eli is a singer songwriter from Sweden (one of my favorite musical countries) who just came onto my scene today. Her track, “The Conquerer” strikes a chord with my ears. It’s got a traditional pop hook, but it’s mixed with some dubstep and darker overtones. There is something about the song and video that is just truly unique, and she called the track an “off centred synthballad.”
Not much else is known about the singer other than the fact that it looks like she will be camped out in the UK for a while. So far, however, I like what I’m hearing. (via The Maroon Cafe)
