This formerly twee Swedish girl group boast a soulfully swaggering frontwoman, Linnea Jönsson, and a fairly significant identity crisis.On their second album, the quintet of school chums make synth rock that swings from Paramore's perky punch ("Reaching Forward") to Franz Ferdinand's post-punk bounce (sweet first single "I'll Be Yours"). Hook-machine songwriter-producer Max Martin ensures that "Can't Find Entrance" is explosively catchy, but Jönsson seems to have more fun stiff-arming her way through the riot grrrl throwdown "Fuckarias": "I'm dizzy, you're sobbing," she sings as the band falls into chaos behind her.
