Those Dancing Days may have swiped their name from a Led Zeppelin staple, but that’s about it. Rather than reheat Jimmy Page riffs, the young, all-female Stockholm quintet raids the sonic closets of the Smiths and ’60s girl groups instead. Alongside the preternaturally mature croon of Linnea Jönsson, those threads fit seamlessly: On the single “Home Sweet Home,” Colgate-clean guitar and hummingbird drum work lift a buoyant chorus that didn’t need a boost to begin with. Elsewhere, the soul-pop confetti of “Space Hero Suits” flutters to entrancing heights.
