[mp3] The Deer Tracks - "Isbjörnskatten"

Swedish electro-pop duo The Deer Tracks usually write songs in English, but this new one, from their Eggegrund EP, is in their native tongue. And like most of those Northern European/Scandinavian languages, when you hear it sung well, it comes across as both strikingly beautiful and completely alien (see Sigur Rós). The calming, hypnotic “Isbjörnskatten” fits that description, and is based on a traditional folk tale about a cat that wants to be a polar bear. Hm. You should have a listen:
