SONG OF THE DAY: Royksopp and Robyn – Do It Again
Norwegian duo Royksopp and Swedish electropop singer Robyn have collaborated before on singles with each other – “None of Dem” and “The Girl and the Robot.” The title single of their forthcoming EP “Do It Again” came about after a night of clubbing, and you would imagine it started as a joke. The lyrics are a play on the repetition and predictable nature of dance tracks, but of course the lyrics could be interpreted for hooking up with an ex-lover or partaking in harmful substances. Robyn’s sweetly pop vocals soften the robotic feel of the beats, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the chords and vocal effects aren’t dissimilar to “Dancing On My Own.” In its original version it is already club- (and radio) friendly, but I am guessing some out-there leftfield remixes are forthcoming. The five-track EP is set for release on May 26th and with songs like “Sayit” featuring a sexually charged robot, it will definitely be one worth buying. Watch for them on tour later this year.
