Dance music is truly international. Last July, Finnish duo Kalsi & Applejack mixed 80s new wave, 90s synth pop and modern electro to create the track “Screams.” They knew they had something special so they enlisted the talents of Swedish songwriter Herbie Crichlow who wrote major hits for Backstreet Boys, Robyn, and Super Junior to write the top line. Together they brought in British vocalist Tina Cousins, known for “Pray,” “Killing Time,” “Mysterious Times (with Sash)” and “Curious (with 4 Strings)” whose pretty yet powerful performance matches the creative energy of the track. The resultant song “Screams” has already hit #2 on the iTunes chart in Finland and I suspect that it will work its way around Europe rather quickly.
