Johan Agebjörn — the talented producer behind Sally Shapiro’s Italo-disco mastery — was kind enough to send me a link to a new remix that he describes as “one of my more Shapiro-esque remixes”. Johan’s brief description is accurate, and the remix of Friday Bridge‘s “This Case Is Closed” (from the band’s new Bite My Tongue LP) delivers more than 6 minutes worth of fantastic “Shapiro-esque” bliss. Between this remix, and the recently released “Miracle“, my anticipation for Sally Shapiro’s sophomore album is becoming something fierce.
I wasn’t previously familiar with the Swedish indie-electro-pop duo Friday Bridge, but according to Johan “they’re quite known in Sweden” — and after listening to the Bite My Tongue LP for the first time, and taking a look at the highly-crush-worthy Ylva Lindberg (pictured above) it’s not hard to see why Sweden is into this band.
Here’s a stream of the original version of “This Case Is Closed” (for comparison’s sake) and it’s quite enjoyable.
