This month, electronic music act Hortlax Cobra released two new singles, “I’m Ready” and “Light as a Feather” ft. Beatrice Eli. He was also kind enough to curate a playlist of his favorite delicious electronic tunes. Hortlax Cobra is the longstanding project of Swedish musician John Eriksson, of Peter Bjorn and John fame (you remember?). “I’m Ready” has a synthy, dancey (dare I say Euro-y?) vibe somewhere in the realm of a spaced-out Todd Terje. Like the cobra of his namesake, the track snakes around synthesizer keys and stereo space. “Light as a Feather” features guest vocalist Beatrice Eli, one of the most beloved Swedish stars — Eli’s voice gives the track a lilting, soulful flavor. Both the singles are very cleanly produced, bursting with an indie pop sensibility that can only be mastered by a honed musician such as John Eriksson.
Hortlax’s playlist features songs of a similar, upbeat vibe — check it out on Spotify by clicking this link.
Hortlax Cobra will release two more double singles via INGRID. You can keep up with him on Facebook and Soundcloud.
