Don’t ever accuse Swedish pop queen Robyn of not giving back. After working with electronic pop/rock group and fellow Swedes Teddybears on her 2005 self-titled album, the singer throws one back on the group’s brand-new single “Cardiac Arrest.”
Sure, we’re slightly unnerved at countless 14-year-olds now mimicking the singer’s request to “Shake your bone maker,” but we can’t deny the catchy, summer-ready vibe of the song. On “Cardiac Arrest,” Teddybears fuse the driving, propulsive beat popularized by 1970s German bands like Kraftwerk with Robyn’s sweet-with-a-bite-to-it Scandinavian style for a track that sounds like the new soundtrack to a high school party.
And hopefully “Baby Barbie on barbiturates,” our favorite line from the song, is being turned into a movie as we speak. So Valley Of The Dolls!! (Note: don’t do barbiturates.)
Teddybears member Klas Ahlund produced most of Robyn, with the group itself credited as producers on “Cobrastyle.” Robyn recently earned a Performing Woodie nomination at this year’s mtvU Woodie Awards.
