Swedish duo Duets and Stuff make music that feels serene, streaked with off-center pop arrangements, minimalist rhythms and filled with catchy moments that linger in your memory for days. Comprised of musicians Greta and Raimond, the band draws upon influences such as Peter Björn and John, Feist and The xx in order create such bewildering and mesmeric pop atmospheres.
The band has been described by Greta and Raimond as "an easygoing DIY-project which covers all the creative stuff we come up with together; music, art, video and so on." And that's as fitting a description as you're likely to find -- it gives them ample room to expand their already considerable dream-pop aesthetic and allows for some hazy experimentation.
On recent single, "Serve Somebody," they entangle themselves in some hypnotic synths and spacious rhythms that unfold at a leisurely pace. It's a breezy and curiously lush-sounding track that doesn't rush to its conclusion, opting instead for a slower paced resolution. The song seems to hang in the air in front of you, just out of reach, catching the low light of an evening sun and sending a welcome warmth across your face.
