‘I Don’t Like Your Band’

After some major stop-start action caused by problems with previous stable Island Records and legal woes that saw her fighting to retain creative control over the songs she recorded while under contract with them, Norway’s top electro popstar is finally ready to release her second album Don’t Stop through cult label Smalltown Supersound. Five years on from her debut Anniemal, Annie has lost none of her ability to churn out refreshingly lively, big-hearted pop tunes. ‘I Don’t Like Your Band’ follows the same club/radio/party friendly dynamics that made her earlier hit ‘Chewing Gum’ so catchy. Cheery, brimming with tongue-in-cheek humour, and impossible not to tap your toes along to, it’s a perfect return to form. Putting her woes behind her, Annie manages to cross both effective, wholesome pop and indie credibility in one swift stroke. And with the rising wave of female electro-pop artists – La Roux, Little Boots et al – the climate seems perfect for the blonde haired, airy-voiced singer to belatedly step back into the fold. MP3 after the jump.
