Languid and epic; they come together to form the unlikeliest of bedfellows. A fusion of the sleek and sultry and chillingly crisp, a chromatose panther dancing on ice before mutating into a car like one of those flickeringly, improbable adverts. The coup de grace is the way Sarah Assbring sits astride it all, pronounced, playing the part of the executioner and the sentenced, the puppet and the strings (ably assisted by Rasmuss Hägg). Great pop in that sense, because from the second it comes washing in, the bassline insistent whilst unhooking a latch inside, I realize Change of Heart has been on the stereo somewhere else forever. And even when you've stopped and breathed it in its golden power, it will still be there.
