jj – I Wish

We don’t know if it’s the best way to start the working week, but the new track by Stockholm-based duo jj definitely worth a mention. It’s called I Wish and it’s an extremely icy synth-pop piece which describes the struggles of being in a relationship (indeed the track is tagged as #breakup on SC) with a mix of percussions and cold electronic beats (The Knife anyone?). There’s no happiness within it and the slow-paced sad mood that hails from Elin Kastlander’s vocals is actually so depressing while she sings: “I wish I could hate you / I wish I could say that I deserve more, but I really don’t / I just fuck shit up”. The song comes after jj’s latest LP V – out in 2014 – and we really hope it could stand as the first hint of a forthcoming release.
