Gathania's "Get It Out" was probably the 2009 single that most consistently got spins throughout the year from me; for my money, it's the best September song since "Cry For You," even if September didn't release it (the men who make Petra's music are also the men behind Gathania, though), mainly thanks to that house piano hook. "Blame It On You," which impressed someone somewhere enough to originally be lined up for a UK release before being canceled via indefinite postponement, came with a video that proved Gathania could give some of the best popstar face I'd seen coming from a new act this year; girl knows how to flirt with a video camera. Despite being dance hits, though, neither of those singles had real crossover success, which has meant we've been waiting for an album that was finished by April for two-thirds of a year.
"Spinning," Gathania's third single in her native Sweden (and embedded above as a radio rip), marks another solid single from the Von der Burg pop factory, the people who have also given us all September's songs, Danny's "Tokyo," and Alcazar's "This Is The World We Live In" and "Physical." It's catchy, classy dance-pop with a quickfire chorus that, even if it doesn't quite seem to have as strong a vocal melody as "Blame It On You," is full of the little electronic hooks you'd expect from this composers--in other words, a song that all lovers of the VDB sound and Swedish pop in general will take to their hearts, that clubbers will happily dance to, and that will probably once again fail to take off in Sweden. I hope I'm proven wrong, and hope even more so that we finally get to hear that album, but just in case I'm not, let's all legally download the single when it comes out this December, OK?
I don't know the exact date of release, but Gathania's single should be released at some point this month, at which point you can purchase it here (digital).
