This enveloping, gorgeous pop track from [ingenting] is my current fav, as of hours or a few days ago when I first heard it. There’s no reason indie pop can’t be well-written. I have no patience for most NPR indie, with its lazy or mediocre song writers. It can be done! You can first write a good song and only then slap on some indie veneer! So, yeah, “Halleluja!” is a good song. I have a lot of cred.
The word “ingenting” (een-yen-TEENG) means “nothing” in Swedish. That’s as philosophical as I can get in that language. Wish my Swedish were good enough to sing along – I’m sure it’ll have a big allsång moment at Way Out West, where [ingenting] will play August 15.
“Halleluja!” is the first single from the band’s next album, Tomhet, idel tomhet (“emptiness, nothing but emptiness”). The album was produced by Jari Haapalainanen (Camera Obscura, Ed Hardcourt, Eldkvarn, The Concretes) and is due September 9 on the ever excellent Labrador.
