This is straight out of left field for us. Not ambient, but not in your face energetic, 047 is one of Sweden’s best bitpop groups, hands down. For those who are not aware, bitpop is music made with electronics that pretty much sound like what’d be coming out of your game console in the 80’s/90’s. The trend continued into the late 90’s/early 2000’s because of hand-held video games, which never let the love for 8-bit music to die, and thus came 047. The music is happy, melodic, yet surprisingly complex and interest-grabbing. The sound of the short electronic blips string together to make something incredible. Not really a formal review, just something to check out.
