Labrador Records is one of Sweden's most reliable indie-pop labels, and Club 8 are one of the label's most reliable heavy-hitters. The band teams singer Karolina Komstedt with label boss Johan Angergård, who also leads the Legends and is a member of Acid House Kings. The duo has confidently embraced a formidable range of styles throughout its career, and "I'm Not Gonna Grow Old," the first taste of upcoming album Above the City, pairs a real-live-disco vibrancy recalling Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with the group's usual, Saint Etienne-like elegance. It's no surprise that a band whose 2007 LP was titled The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming would sing a convincing ode to holding onto a youthful spirit: "I want to stay somewhat like me," Komstedt declares, between catchy whoa-oh-ohs. The follow-up to 2010's The People's Record is due out May 21 via, of course, Labrador.
