Yesterday we mentioned that Eric Berglund a.k.a. the other half of Swedish electronica duo The Tough Alliance a.k.a ceo has has a new 7” out for “Illuminata,” off of his Modular debut White Magic. The b-side attached to the single? A riveting, hazy electronic rendition of Beyonce's “Halo” from her 2008 full length, I Am Sasha Fierce. The cover incorporates all things ceo: his absorbed, distinct vocalization, hints of shoegaze and computerized electro-pop, and a moderately positive inclination. Like labelmates jj, ceo completely refurbishes this r&b gem with dreamy landscapes that only a Swede could perpetuate.
Illuminata 7” is out now via Sincerely Yours.
