In Our Space Hero Suits is the debut LP released by the band Those Dancing Days. Three years later, the band produced the full-length album, Daydreams & Nightmares. The hand-drawn and hand-painted album cover art was created by group members Cissi Efraimsson and Rebecka Rolfart. The work clearly exemplifies the DIY and independent elements of the group's stylistic essence. Linnea Jönsson - Vocalist. Rebecka Rolfart - Guitar. Cissi Efraimsson - Drums. Lisa Pyk - Hammond Organ.
In Our Space Hero Suits. Overview (current section).
All bands need a weapon, and for Those Dancing Days it is Linnea Jönsson's robust, husky voice. Reminiscent of 1960s soul singers, it deserves such formidable songwriters as Smokey Robinson or the Brill Building greats. Unfortunately, all Johnson has is herself and her bandmates, and while the quintet are beguilingly sweet, formidable songwriters they are not. Guitarist Rebecka Rolfart has asserted that their debut album is influenced by "life and pretty boys": cue lots of vague lyrics that could have been cobbled together in 15 minutes.
Enter Those Dancing Days then, five teenage girls from the suburbs of Stockholm. Their brand of sixties girl soul inspired punk pop has had many critics frothing at the mouth since their excellent self-produced 'Those Dancing Days EP' landed unsuspectingly on our doormats at the back end of last year. A complete breath of fresh air in a music scene dominated by tired lad rock bands and overwrought, over-pretentious Americans with very little to say. Here was the sound of a band truly at ease with what they were doing. That's not to say there isn't enough to warrant investing in 'In Our Space Hero Suits' for; musically for an outfit so young, Those Dancing Days sound more accomplished than many established line-ups more than twice their age, while in Linnea Jonsson possess a vocalist with a distinctive voice and exquisite range that more than makes up for the lack.
Throughout the album, prancing, synth staccato leads the way as Linnea Jönsson's vocals flutter around - in turns tremulous and forceful but never shrill. Hitten is her sugary flirtation with therapy, a journey to ''make things easier for everyone including me''. Elsewhere, their naivety is played to knowing advantage and Actionman is a delightful, deliberately childlike goodbye to a relationship. However, no sooner does doubt set in than Those Dancing Days takes a hammond organ to the disco and unleashes a glittering track that's a fitting tribute to the quintet.
