Swedish-American trio Thieves Like Us are back with another cold, tense slice of clubby electropop nostalgia, “Marie Marie,” a dark, knife-sharp series of demands directed at that titular, “cold as ice” heroine – “stop calling me at night!” “Take my advice!” That warbling, steel-drummy, distorted backbeat and assorted sharp, cutting synth riffs help cultivate an appropriately mysterious, chilly air – here’s a song with shadows under its eyes, a lot of dark secrets, a song that dresses in black. It’s also completely irresistible, instantly and permanently catchy, a stunning piece of toe-tapping strobe-light pop. Captured Tracks will release Thieves Like Us’s fourth LP, Bleed Bleed Bleed, on March 20.
