Those songs that invite you in and hold you tight from the first few words are those songs that become instant personal favorites. A few years back UK’s Strobegirl released a dreamy indie pop track “Heaven Today” that did just that for me; and as this is now, she has gone and reworked the track into a new synth-ier version and it is a brillant delight.
“When I was a girl I was always first on and last off the dance floor! I’m more of a woman now but ‘Strobewoman’ doesn’t sound as good. I bet she would make an awesome super hero though!” – Strobegirl
The revamped version is a slightly darker lush soundtrack cradling Heather’s eager yearnings and it simply holds the listener hostage, willingly. The thing about synth-pop is that their is a lot of it in varying degrees of story-lines, if there is even a story at all. “Heaven Today” tells a tale and leaves questions as well. Who is the object of desire and how does it all work out in the end for the narrator? Very cinematic.
