Twisted and unique electronic/ indie hybrid

Swedish act I Used To Be A Sparrow  have produced something genuinely fresh sounding. Warpaint on Invisible Children stops and starts, a jerky, offkilter beast. At times it feels like the song itself - a mournful, almost euphoric piece of Scandanavian indie - is punchdrunk and reeling, trapped in a circle of jabbing drums. It's hard to know whether we like it or not, because there's little to compare it to. It's intriguing though, and demands further listens. There's an album coming in April, more info on the band's facebook.
