Det Vackra Livet songs With their new band Det Vackra Livet, the brothers Philip and Henrik Ekström aren't doing anything they didn't do in their previous outfit, the Mary Onettes. On their debut self-titled album, there is still plenty of love on display for the gloomy, fog machine-obscured 80s sound of bands like Echo & the Bunnymen and New Order with banks of synths, Hook-y basslines, Phillip's melancholy and melodramatic vocals, and heavily FX'd guitars cascading throughout the mix. There are a couple of changes the brothers have implemented here. The biggest difference on the surface is that the duo has turned their back on the English language in order to deliver the lyrics in their native Swedish tongue. That may seem like a bad thing to some, but really, it wouldn't matter what language Ekström used, his emotional delivery works regardless. More importantly, the band shows improvement over the Mary Onettes' last album, both in the sound and in the songwriting. The arrangements are similarly huge and spacious with layers of synths, guitars, and drums filling every inch of the sound spectrum, but now there isn't the same overblown and over-worked feel the Mary Onettes sometimes fell victim to; instead, the feel is more organic and scaled to real human size instead of aiming for the back ...

Det Vackra Livet Biography

Det Vackra Livet CD discography Artist formed in 2010 as a side project for brothers Henrik and Philip Ekström. Like their flagship group, the Mary Onettes, Artist found the Gothenburg, Sweden-based siblings in their comfort zones, serving up another round of icy, retro-synth pop in the vein of New Order and the Cure. Inspired by the memoirs of the brothers' grandmother, as well as the poetry of psychiatrist, author, musician, politician, and former member of the Finnish Parliament Claes Andersson, the band's eponymous full-length debut, which was prefaced by the single "Viljan," arrived in March 2011 on Labrador Records. ~ James Christopher Monger
