TEDDYBEARS feat. Beenie Man - Broken Heartbeat


New Single
Out 21st August 2015
Via Polydor Records

“The most important big-heads to come out of Sweden's music scene, like, ever.” - Noisey

“Spiked with psychedelic guitars and skittering synths. Nice!”- SPIN

“Swedish grindcore-cum-stereo selector trio Teddybears is like an aural Jackson Pollock painting”- Pitchfork

What does one focus on when introducing an act who’s not only won a number of Grammy Awards, been a part of countless amounts of ads including the latest Peugeot and Nike TV commercials, FIFA 2015 soundtrack, as well as climbing the charts with Giorgio Moroder and Charli XCX Diamonds, co-written by yours truly? And this is just the tip of the iceberg when speaking of the Swedish act Teddybears.

Since the beginning, Klas and Joakim Åhlund together with Patrik Arve have used their artistry as a platform to highlight their political views by determinately fighting for change and speaking openly anti-racism, anti-animal cruelty, pro-equality, pro-feminism and pro-unity.

After becoming one of the world’s most established team of writers and producers, having worked with the likes of Max Martin, Cee-Lo Green, Sia, Madonna and Iggy Pop to name a few, the Scandi trio have now decided to collaborate with the godfather of dancehall, the one and only Beenie Man.

Broken Heartbeat is a chilled summer track, taking inspiration from Ninja Tune’s Thundercat and Elephant Man, whilst packaging it into an easy-listening piece of music. Driven by a very catchy and cool bass-line, Beenie Man sprinkles this edgy yet semi-poppy track with his lyrical wizardry whilst managing to retain his signature style.

Broken Heartbeat is taken from the band’s upcoming new LP, and it will be out for sale and download everywhere 21st August on Polydor Records.
