Today’s song is from Sweden’s Last Lynx and is titled “Killing Switch”. Last Lynx is a relatively young band, coming off of their 2011 EP release ‘Alaska’. This song was released as a single this winter, and if it is a sign of things to come, well then things bode well for us listeners.
It’s not a complicated tune, with a confidently swaggering rhythm section, highlighted by pleasant bass plucking. Then there is some groovy guitar and some choice peripheral electronic sounds during the chorus. But the real catchy’ness lies in the interaction between the male and female vocalists – whether they are in call and response, or singing in unison.
