Kleerup feat. Susanne Sundfør - Let Me In

Swedish producer Kleerup is still probably best known as the man behind Robyn's phenomenal hit With Every Heartbeat - in the English speaking world at least.  Let Me In will feature on the first of two mini-albums released this year and next, which follow his 2012 debut 'Aniara'.

Where Robyn's track is drenched in melancholy, Let Me In is a far darker, sexier affair.  Its funky, 80s strutting bassline is reminiscent of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax, rumbling beneath grand kaleidoscopic synths and a dreamy vocal from Susanne Sundfør (a Norwegian singer-songwriter whose own moody solo material is excellent, as well as collaborations with Röyksopp and M83. She was also a backing singer for Björk!).

Needless to say this is a stomping, emphatic return that should be representative of a brilliant couple of albums.


Listen: Let Me In will feature on the mini-album 'As If We Never Won' released on October 13th..
